Code-Red-1-1024x1024.jpg

The first person to hook a fish on this fly was legendary intrepid angler Gretchen from Colorado. We have now been fishing together for two weeks every year for over 15 years.
The fish promptly after being hooked swam around a log. Gretchen looked at me and said “This is a code Red Situation” and there the fly was named.

Crucial-Ant-1-1024x1024.jpg

For years I have been trailing small Ant dry flies behind a larger dry to sipping fish. This pattern started life as a foam dry ant. At times the ant did not float too well and I was amazed at how often fish would eat it after it had sunk. So he we have the sinking version the Crucial Ant.
