Hatches of fly ants are very important to anglers who want to get out and try this pattern with good success. Flying ants can be observed from April though September. When other patterns are not working tie on an ant and give it a try.
Flying ant patterns are fished either dry or wet. Matching the profile, size and color is important. Once you get it close to the real thing, you wonít have to wait long to get fish to bite. Fish them in rivers and lakes. Look for dead or overhanging tress-thatís where ants are likely to congregate.
Tie these flies in sizes 12-16.
