Top trick to double your catch rate...tie on a ant about 8" below your top water fly. The oldtimer is on the money with clipping off the wings. More often than not trout will take the black ant trailer. Super technique!

The most productive trailer fly you can fish in the autumn out west. Buy the bigger black sizes and trim off the wings. Hang it about a foot below any top fly. Betcha they hit the ant!
