Description

Amy’s Ant was created by the legendary Jack Dennis of Jackson, Wyoming.  This adult stonefly imitation has quickly become many anglers’ favorite dry fly as it continually fools selective trout under a wide range of conditions.  Mostly made of synthetic materials, Amy’s Ant floats like a cork and rides high in the water column.  It is one of our top selling adult stonefly imitations, along with the Chubby Chernobyl.  It has taken Western tailwaters by storm, so make sure you don’t leave home without a few!  Our favorite color to fish is olive.

Fishing Strategies:

Amy’s Ant fishes best June through September.  To increase success rates, methodically cover water and show your fly to the most fish as possible.  We typically dead-drift Amy’s Ant most of the time but don’t be afraid to use it as an indicator and in a dry-dropper rig.  This will allow you to cover a wider assortment of water.  We generally use a 9-foot leader terminating in either 3X or 4X tippet.
