How to Tie Mike’s Honey Ant

Producer: Tim Flagler

Author, fly tier and blogger Matt Grobert ties Mike’s Honey Ant, a pattern originated by Mike Lawson of Henry’s Fork Anglers.

Matt starts with a size 16 Dai-Riki #300 dry fly hook, but 14s also work well. For thread he’s loaded a bobbin with 6/0 olive Danville.
