Jesus Was A Carpenter Ant

They’re here, our big winged carpenter ants of spring. Fun stuff. All of our finned friends in rivers around Truckee-Tahoe-Western Nevada, lakes, and tribs, will have ants on their minds for the next couple weeks. You can do some prospecting with a single ant pattern, or get one a little bigger like a chernobyl, and hang some droppers off the back. Besides the chernobyl, my Jesus Was a Carpenter Ant is a good one, it’s available only at Mountain Hardware in Truckee, and it floats well enough to hang some droppers off the back. Also another good fly from Solitude is the RPS ant, a true killer. Some photos from the last few on the Truckee River.

    Hey Matt,
    I just wanted the thank you again for a great day on the river last Saturday. My wife will probably be pissed when I come home with a new switch rod, but I’ll deal with that when the time comes. Hope to see you on the river soon.

    I guess so, that should be our claim to fame.

    It’s the Mother’s Day ant hatch!
