Looks like they float nice! Traditionalists will hate but is it really worse than a foam ant? I dont think so. Come early summer a floating ant is a killer on the fly!

Why not, they may just work. I make mine out of balsa wood and tippet material. Let us know how the trout like them!

"Ready for the hate" :lol: :lol: :lol:

They are certain to do 2 things, 1) catch fish all day long and 2) make a traditionalist like me cringe :D
