Conserving, protecting and restoring North America’s cold water fisheries and their
Fly of the Month
While he was owner of The Compleat Fly Fisher shop in Wise River Montana, Phil Wright
developed this attractor for fishing the Big Hole River. I believe that one of the
reasons for its success is due to the fact that it is actually a good imitation of
a flying ant. When tying this fly, don't make the wing too full and be sure to bind
it tightly to the hook to prevent the thorax from becoming too bulky. Palmer the
hackle so that the peacock herl shows through.
