How To Tie The Micro Foam Ant (Rainy’s Foam Ant Bodies): Fly Tying Video

The Micro Foam Ant (Rainy’s Foam Ant Bodies)

Simple and effective, Rainy’s Ant Bodies have made things easy. Put a hook in the vise, add the foam, some hackle, and a wing and you’re done. I love tying this fly and maybe enjoy fishing it even more. The white web wing helps you see it and the hackle gives this dry fly the perfect amount of movement on the water. Try Black and Brown to match the ants on your local water.
