Amy’s Ant Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Amy’s Ant is a incredible terrestrial pattern.  In fact, it is hands down my favorite!  The Amy’s Ant is no easy fly to tie, it is actually fairly involved and takes some practice.  But once mastered, it is a very rewarding fly to tie.  The Amy’s Ant can be tied in two main colors, Olive and Red.  The Amy’s Ant is best fished near the bank and fish really react to the fly being plopped on the surface hard.  Such a great pattern!
