Soft Hackle Ant in a size 14 – 18 tied on a dry fly hook, is one of my favorites. It is tied several different ways. I like a red butt and sometimes a red center or both. It is also tied with either chartreuse dyed partridge or natural. The body can even be done with dubbing or some type of synthetic material.
When fishing It is my dropper behind a hopper or double goofus bug. The Goofus bug is a great fly invented by Pat Barnes, that’s another story for another time.
