Begin by placing a size 14 fine wire hook in the vice and using black twist thread for the black ant, red for the red one and so on for different colours.
Take a strip of black foam around 3mm in with and point the tail end of the body. Trap down the foam a third of the way down the hook.
Here add in several strands of Krystal flash for the wings and bring forward the thread up to the second third of the hook.
Trap down the second segment of foam and tie in a small cock black hackle to act as the legs.
Wind on two turns of the black hackle and secure with a few turns of thread. Pull the last piece of foam to the front of the hook and finish off the fly.
This is a really simple and quick tie, its a little fly that will catch those fussy fish during these hot days, while it floats great, the fly sits lovely in the surface film just where the fish want them. Don't forget to try the pink ones closer to the fall of the dark.
