Delektable Flying Ant
The Delektable Flying Ant comes to us from Dan Delekta of Cameron, Montana. Simply put, this has been one of the deadliest ant patterns on the Madison over the last five years. If you are lucky enough to catch an “ant fall,” where flying ants descend upon the river in swarms of thousands, the delektable flying ant will clean up like no other. We usually see the smaller black ants start to fly around the first week in August and the honey ants usually start to show themselves a couple weeks afterwards. Both colors of this fly accurately depict the naturals, and the UV Ice Dub body and super floss rubber legs get the attention of even the most selective trout. One nice thing about this fly is that the CDC acts as both a naturally buoyant wing as well as little white beacon for easy strike detection. The Delektable Flying Ant is available in black or cinnamon, and we fish it with confidence for both a standard ant as well as a flying ant pattern.
