This time of year ants are so well liked that I carry a small box with nothing but 5 or 6 ant patterns. I carry foam ones, dubbed ones, hard bodied ones, and winged ones in a couple different colors and sizes. This is a new pattern I found when I was tying up some ants for my son to take to WY on his NOLS course next week.

Hook: 102y sz13 (yes they come in odd sizes)
Thread: Uni 8/0
Body: Coated with Clear Cure Goo
Legs & Scapes: Leg Stuff from Flycraft/ it's Black polypropylene monfilament. I think lacquer coated thread would work just as well

*clean your tying area before using Clear Goo! Every little speck of dust and fiber will stick too it!
