A Pink Variation On The Chernobyl Ant
In the past I have made no bones about not being a fly fisherman. I throw metal and meat 98% of the time, sometimes both at the same time. But there are few flies that I keep around for special occasions. Chernobyl Ants are one of those. I like them because they have a great profile from underwater, don’t sink and are relatively easy to tie.
This variation, the Blingnobyl Ant takes it up a notch, using some pink craft store foam to add some oddball color to the traditional black Chernobyl Ant pattern. This video was done by the crew at flyfishfood.com and if you like tying flies you should check out their site, they have some cool patterns.
