Shimuzaki's Ant - Flats Man



Hook: TMC 100 or 100BL, size 12-18
Thread: UNI 6/0 or 8/0 black
Dubbing: Superfine Dry Fly by Wapsi Fly Co.
Hackle: Whiting 100's sized according to hook size
Underwing: Brown or Dun CDC
Overwing: White CDC tied in at the head, pull over head and tie off at thorax

Uses: This is an excellent Stillwater and stream pattern. I have found it most effective to only put floatant on the wing and let the rest of the fly sit slightly under water. I also tie this in brown or cinnamon. Pre-packaged CDC by Orvis is my favorite as it provides the most consistent tufts of feather...

Enjoy!
