Great looking ants Raimund. I consider ant patterns to be irresistible to the trout and when they fall from a dead tree over the stream, they cause a feeding frenzy that sharks can’t match.
I’ve had a few “arm wearying” days fishing the red bodied ants in a slightly smaller size (14) and I wish you the same. Early autumn seems the best time for wood ants here. Get out there and make some sore lips to even the score for what I’m sure will be sore arms. LOL
