CDC & Foam Ant

CDC and Foam are Buddies

We have spent several years surveying trout across the country and the consensus is that they all love flying ant patterns.  Cinnamon, black, brown, etc.  95.87% of them confirmed that they would readily eat a properly presented ant fly pattern.  Scientific research aside, we started to pay attention more to flying ants once we started fishing Lance's Bionic ant, and watching picky mayfly eaters move 7' out of their feeding lanes to eat the juicier morsel.  On this fly, you will see a cool technique to create a round body with foam and dubbing, and you will also see the cinnamon pepper color of hackle that we have been using a lot lately.
