How To Tie Mono Eye Ant
What You’ll Need
Uni-thread 6/0, black
Beaver or Superfine
Tie the whole stem down along the hook shank. Really secure it so it doesn’t shift. So add a little tension on every wrap.
Add a smooth base of dubbing. I like to dub the middle into a little ball.
Tie in the hackle to create the legs and a little more floatation. Make sure you measure it to be the correct size for the hook size you’re tying. I make about four turns and cut the excess. Don’t tie the tip side down.
Whip finish and you have a deadly pattern. You can also fish this to be a sunken ant without the hackle. Just add epoxy for weight and it will sink.
