Foam Ant

This simple foam any pattern is a great little fly to have for late summer and into the fall fly fishing season. I tie this pattern in black and a brown/red version using ginger or furnace hackle. The fly floats wonderfully on the surface and when it does get a little waterlogged, it sits comfortably in the surface film.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
