Large winged ants are hatched only for a moment and only on a certain type of water! The most frequent occurrences are natural and forest still waters such as lakes, ponds and dams! Ants are very clumsy at the time of hatching, so the wind often blows them on the water. Fish are well aware of this short summer season and are prepared for this type of insects under the water surface. As soon as the time of winged ants comes, you must be ready too, because the fish do not eat anything else at this time! Who has experienced this phenomenon by the water knows well what it is!
Therefore, use a fly that will have clearly separated parts of the body on a larger butt and a smaller head with black hackles and light colored wings, or simply use one of the flies of our selection of Ants!
