    Well Congo Hair is like a fine poly yarn so it's fairly buoyant. Hell, the original Iris Ant is still floating in its little shot glass in my tying room, mostly because I forgot about it until the...

    Paracute Iris Ant

    It took me entirely too long to get around to tying this variation but I think it was worth the wait.

    Winged Iris Ant

    Added a Congo Hair wing (kind of sparse but should improve visibility on the water), nixed the hackle as the wing should provide plenty of floatiness, threw in some body quill legs because they just...

    This fly in particular was more of a proof-of-concept. Definitely fishable but I agree no way visible. I have a winged version I'll try to post later today that is much more visible and honestly...

    Iris Ant

    Drawing inspiration from the wing of an Iris Caddis, I made an ant. An Iris Ant.

    Small, Dark, and Buggy

    Is it a little black stone? Maybe. A tiny, dark caddis? Sure. A midge? Why not. Hell it could probably even pass for a little flying ant. Not all attractors need to be big and foamy! ;)

    I've read through that a while ago and totally forgot about it. I'm for sure going to have to try that. I'm sure using some finer hair such as squirrel would work well for smaller flies.

    Jiggy Ant

    I've seen numerous wet/sinking/drowned ant patterns, but I have never seen a jiggy one. Figured I'd try to make that a reality. I know subsurface ants, and really any terrestrial for that matter,...
