I want Ants!

Recommended Posts

These have been impossible to find the last few years. Anybody know a manufacturer? I want the same hook in approx size 6. This is an old picture I found on the internet. Plenty of dry flies but none like this.

Just found some at Maynard's Tackle.

 

 

I have ordered a couple of time from them. They have some good panfish tackle. My order this time was $75 due to the fact that friends and family also wanted some jigs. When you out fish them 2 days in a row they take notice ;)

Yup, tried them. Dave at Maynard's says demand for ants is very low so most places don't have them. I ordered from him online and the order was shipped the same day. Anybody looking should give him a call, he has great prices on tungsten jigs too.

Back in the day you wouldn't catch me without an ant on a jig stick!  Best crappie catchers we had!

 

I still carry some but haven't used them in years.  Why?  I dunno.  Why is a good question.

 

I still see them in some shops around.  Glad to hear Maynard's is still making them.  Might stock up!

 When I'm after Gills,  Ice Flies(ants) tipped with a waxie is what I start out with and pretty much stay with them. If I change anything its color.

I am kinda partial to the Lady Bugs. My dad was the one that got me started on them. He out fished me and my brothers the one day and I had to see what he was using. Now they are always in my tackle box.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
