I think I put that on a size 14. According to Cutter's write up, however, size doesn't matter since ants present themselves in all sorts or contorted forms. He does claim that most people fish an ant that is too small.
Looks great Gary! I can just imagine a giant trout rising to that.
Thanks also to Jack for reaching back to the 1930s for a pattern!
I attended a lecture by Bill Clinton this past week and the discussion turned to ants. He mentioned that the biomass of ants is greater than the biomass of all human beings. That's a lot of fish food and I think worthy of some great patterns.
Special thanks to Jack and Gary for keeping this Salon from being a total disaster, but I think I gotta go with FinLuver's "LIkeable" as my pick for January. You just can't argue with the success of a well eaten pattern that was still catching fish.
FinLuver, pick something more appealing than ants!
