The Salvation Ant is a sunken ant pattern tied to fish below the surface.  Ants are one of the most prolific food sources during the warmer months with an over abundance of them scattered along any stream, river bed, in the trees, or bushes falling into the water.  Because of that they are an extremely effective bug to fish.  Not every ant will remain on the surface until eaten though, and many will become submersed in the water dropping into the fishes feeding zone.  This makes a sunken ant pattern a must have in every anglers box.  This one is...

The Purple Haze is a fly created by Andy Carlson over 15 years ago.  It is similar to a Parachute Adams, and can be used as an attractor pattern or mayfly imitation just like the Adams can.  Traditionally the Purple Haze is tied with Super Floss rather than a dubbed body.  We have taken the liberty of making some changes to the pattern that fit more artistic style, and have consistently brought fish to the net over the years.  The Purple Haze has quickly become many anglers go to pattern, and one of the most prolific patterns in the western...
