About the Lunn's Red Ant Trout Fly

Lunn's Red Ant is a very successful imitation of the red ant which is a favourite, yet seldom available, food for trout.

"They do not account for many fish in the season because ants are only flying a short time, but after a flight has crossed, which may be as early as July, do not forget to try an ant.

I consider it to be the surest take of any pattern of any insect."
Major J W Hill, author of 'River Keeper'
