Cinnamon Toast Ant

Cheech  - Cheech 2021

This fly has been a staple in my terrestrial box for several years for good reason.  I really like the way it looks and fishes, and it's super simple to tie.  When dressed properly, this fly sits low in the water and the wings act as kind of a balancing indicator.  The Cinnamon Toast Ant and it's brother, the Black Toast Ant are now available through Fulling Mill, and you can buy them pre-tied on our website!  BUY THEM HERE or look below for the recipe list.
