William Blacker: Standard Flies: 3. The Ant Fly

  • Hook: Vintage blind-eye #8
  • Body: Cinnamon brown mohair
  • Legs: Red, small
  • Wing: Starling, wing

The Ant Fly, from The Art of Angling by William Blacker. The one above is tied in hand on a vintage blind-eye hook, while the three below all are tied for fishing on Ahrex FW580 #10. The body is more fiery-brown than cinnamon brown, but I guess Blacker wouldn’t mind.
