That's a lot of ants.... but hey, they work and the fish love them. If a hopper is the cheeseburger in a Happy Meal then Cinnamon Ants are the french fries...... Fished as a dropper off the hopper it's a great combo for those dog days of summer. Here is the PFS version.

Thread: 8/0 Uni Rusty Brown
Front hump: small ball rusty brown DK dub

Use high-end hackle, we want this sucker to float on the Yellowstone!
