Chernobyl Ant

One of the first patterns shared from the "Mystery Man" is the Chernobyl Ant.  This is a popular pattern, especially on many western rivers in the United States.  An added bonus with this high-floating dry fly is that it can be used as part of a "dry-dropper" combo.  Have fun with this pattern, and thanks for sharing, "Mystery Man!"
