The Deadly Ant dry fly is bloody Deadly! It's fooled and slayed so many brown trout in New Zealand it's not even funny. Even though zero ants are around, It’s that good- even NZ wary trout can’t resist it.
With our signature design of spindly dangling knotted legs, a slender, segmented closed cell foam body, and a small, easy-to-see natural calf tail post. Wrapped at the base with a slayed stiff cock hackle. Like all our designs, our Deadly Ant design is steeped in history and story that you will read about as you have fishy fun working your way through the website. Enjoy the journey. Thank you.
However, here’s a short bit of the gossip surrounding this neat little trout slayer. The Deadly Ant was perfected by our fish and fly geeky founder. Many moons ago. Only after four weeks, solely dedicated to perfecting its design in the field within the Driftless area of Wisconsin, USA. Where he found there were plenty of trout sipping Ants in the summer, the perfect place for Deadly Ant design perfection.
It's deadly to the core, one of our worldwide top-sellers, And subsequently is one of our lineup of proud Superstars. It’s got its own merch! T-shirts, caps, stickers and woven patches. All icing on the cake to its fish-catching Superstar status.
They are tied on a robust Japanese hook with a wide clear gape for the best solid hookups. To make those fun, fishy dreams come true.
Remember, Having more than one good fly and the right size is always good. So, the more significant the pack, the better; that way, you will have a few staple flies doubled and trebled up in the pack selection.
As we know, there's nothing worse than losing the only fly you have that works.
