Fly Tying: Black Flying Ant

Fly tying tutorials and patterns from Fisherous.com

Juan Ramirez is one of the go-to fly tyer’s when it comes to hopper and terrestrial patterns. I’ve been checking out Juan and his website for quite some time, and I always enjoy his tying videos.

He recently posted up a stellar video on tying his Black Flying Ant. It’s a cool, simple pattern that should probably find a spot in your fly box this Summer.

Ants usually end up near or in the river. In some areas, the flying ants bring up the fish and offer a tasty meal for them. By having a few patterns tucked away in your box, you will be ready the next time the fish are selectively eating ants.
