Ants for fishing trout and Grayling

These are ants that I start tying from a while. I prefer on grub hooks instead of classic hook because I believe that an anatomical aspect will help in presentation  and will look more natural.pupking winged ant for trout and grayling

I prefer to tie them on Demmon DGS 900 – a light barbless hook that I like for my delicate  flies ( not only for small terrestrial flies like small ants ). For body I used thread , for wings I used tips from rooster hackle and for hackle I use genetic hackle or CDC.

I recommend these flies to be used when you want to fish with dry flies but  there is not a hatch to provoke feeding of trout or grayling in surface of water. Also are excellent after a short Summer rain when  level of water is rising and is washing the  river bank. Then a lot of terrestrial insects are washed away and  fish start hunting close to the river bank. I hope  that you like  these flies and these few info helps :)
