Some great patterns so far guys! Tlshealy, those thread bodied ants are killer! Love the flashabou legs...

I tied up a hard-bodied sunken ant pattern that is probably my favorite ant. I fish it tandom with a nymph or green weenie. If I have time I'll do a dry ant or two also.

Body: Thread and dubbing to build up and then coat with Loon Hard Head (black) or epoxy. If Loon Hard Head is used, I like to finish it with a layer of SHHAN...
