Black Ant Dry Fly – Fly Recipe

Black Ant Dry Fly – Fly Recipe

Black Ant Dry FlyThe black ant dry fly is a simple pattern to tie and works well for trout as well as panfish

The black ant pattern has been around for many years. Books I have read indicate the black ant goes back to the early 1800’s but I assume this fly dates back further.

The black ant is an easy fly to tie. There are literally dozens of patterns being tied. In a pinch I have used nothing but black thread and a sparse black hackle. The black ant works well when hatches are not occurring and the trout are active.

The best hooks for this fly are:

Mustad # 94840, # 94842 or # 94833
Sizes: 12-14-16-18-20

Fly Recipe:

Thread: Black

Abdomen: Black beaver dubbed

Thorax: Black beaver dubbed

Legs: Black hackle – tied in middle and sparingly
