Imagine your at your favoritt water deep inside the forrest. Smile
Offcourse you have your flytying gear with you, but you are set for mosquito`s and too your big surprise the water is full of ant`s and the trout is going berserk. Very Happy Very Happy

Shit, you don`t have any foam or any suitable dubbing for ant`s you only have polychenille and hackle ........well not too wory you are saved Very Happy Very Happy

This is what you do, and it only take a few minutes not too say a few seconds.

Thank`s a lot to Staffan Lindstrøm for teaching me this pattern. Smile Smile

Remember that the back knot is moving, making this ant lively on the water.

Terje!


Take a piece of polychenille.....
