Simple black ant - Its terrestrial season!

In the late spring and early summer, terrestrial fishing can be phenomenal. The wind will blow ants, grasshoppers and beetles into the water, and the fish start looking for these tasty snacks. Ants make up one of the most common terrestrials found in the trouts diet. So fishing one of these simple ant patterns at the right time, can yield amazing results. 
 
Hook: Umpqua U001 size 22. Any dry fly hook will do, sizes 16-26
Dubbing: Super Dry Dubbing
Hackle: Top of a black neck cape where the small and fine feathers are.


The past week I have been working on making my own website for tying flies.  So I uploaded this video there.  Check out the video on my site, and also check out my new site.  Keep in mind I'm not fully done with the site.  I don't have all my video's up yet, still working on them.  Let me know what you think about the video, and my site.  Thanks!
