The Madam Ant

The Madam Ant
Kevin Masten

Hook: Tiemco 101, #16
Thread: Black
Underbody: Black Krystal Flash
Body: Black Rainey's Float Foam
Hackle: Black
Legs: Black Flex-Floss

This is a foam variation of the McMurray Ant that I made up for the swap. I've recently been fishing foam ants with great success, especially on windy days. The foam gives this pattern enough buoyancy for adding a dropper underneath.

Tying tips:

Tie in the hackle first, then the legs. After you've got the legs tied in, wrap the hackle making at least one wrap behind and in front of the legs to splay them into the "X" shape. Wind the thread back over the legs and hackle to make the fly durable. I like to trim the hackle flat on the bottom so the ant rides flush in the water. A drop of fluorescent paint on the head makes the fly easy to see.
