Terrestrial Ant

A simple Ant pattern, terrestrial insects live outside the water. If they fall into the water due to carelessness or are blown on at certain times of the year (Summer & Autumn), they are a most welcome and an easy meal for fish cruising the margins. The terrestrial insects belong to the likes of grasshoppers, ants, beetles, caterpillars and bees.

I personally don’t often get the chance to target fish feeding on terrestrial insects. I am told that at certain times of year it is the go to method on Llyn Brenig. I dare say it would work a treat on some of the hill lochs in Scotland where there is little cover and the fish rely of the little critters being blown onto the water.

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.
