Be the first to tie a termite pattern which doesn't look like an ant! It may not meet traditional fly tying techniques regarding hackle size but if these creatures haven't evolved in three million years then they deserve to be imitated as they are.
This fly will hook every trout it's presented to during a termite swarm. However predicting when a swarm/flight will occur is what counts to endure the pure pleasure of hooking fish after fish after fish.
Interestingly also to the disgust of any orthodox fly tyre, this fly still hooks trout when there is no termite flight present amongst a hatch of mayflies, caddis and midge! Enjoy.
The pattern 'Trickster'
