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.

A clean fly tying area is super important when you’re trying to crank out bugs. For me, it can be tough to just tie one type of fly when I sit down at the vise for a couple of hours.

How To Tie The Sparkle Emerger (McFlylon Variation): Fly Tying Video

The Sparkle Emerger (McFlylon Variation)

Originally created by Gary LaFontaine, master of the caddis lifecycle, this pattern varies only slightly. Using McFlylon in place of the Antron (Sparkle Emerger) yarn the rest of this pattern remains. I find that this material is a little easier to work with as you don’t have to card your fibers together and can clip right from the hank.
