Have you fished this yet Chris? I would be interested to know if you've had much success with these "drowned ants". Most of the ants I tie are floated as dries but I can't see why a trout wouldn't eat a sunken ant such as the fly you've tied here. The pattern looks good.

Thanks! Haven’t fished it yet. Just tied it yesterday after reading that once ants hit the water, after a brief struggle they sink rather quickly. Not sure if that’s true or not. We’ll see!
