Default Bill --Shelf Liner ant ?

The fly really works! Saw some rising trout and got two on the first three drifts. But then the fly started sinking on me. Does the fly pattern require floatant or what? If it makes any difference, I couldn't find any bristles that worked as legs so was using a couple of black hackle wraps instead.

Most naturals that get blown in the water don't float for long. Did you keep fishing it? A lot of ant patterns are designed to drift in the film. Exception being maybe winged ants.
I would post a pic, but oldfrat makes fun of my ants...
