Cripple quill ant for trout fishing

0 No tags Permalink

I love ants and my favorite model for trout fishing is the cripple quill ant .

It is simple to tie and you will need only a few materials:

  • Hook #10-14
  • thread: black
  • under-body made of black thread
  • body is made of natural peacock quill
  • hackle is made of hare guard fur
  • wing- just a few white cdc barbs

Underbody made of black thread and body made of peacock quill, 2 turns of hare guard fur and that is it. I coat with resin or head cement for durability.

I fish this fly like a simple and classic wet fly: down and across . Trout hits this fly very strong and for this reason I prefer strong or super strong hook.
