Another ant imitation is the Black Deer Hair Ant. This one was one of the early terrestrials to hit the fly fishing scene and has remained today as one of our most trusted trout flies. This Black Deer Hair Ant variant is top performer with Brookies, Browns and Rainbow but also equally deadly with a variety of pan fish which makes it a great fly to use when teaching the young ones. Tie this pattern on and take the kids down to your local pond and you will give them a great introduction into the world of fly fishing.
Very good presentation of an ant
