A new idea in leech patterns. No stripping for this fly. The balanced leech is tied with a down eye so that it rides balanced in the water column. It is fished dead drift with an indicator. Leeches are often found drifting in mid-column so try fishing it off the bottom. Just let it drift and see what happens! It can be very effective in streams, rivers, and lakes – especially in low light, evenings, mornings, dreary days. It's effective for other species too, try it on bass and lake trout. Two colors: Black or Olive.
Tied on a #12 Fulling Mill jig force hook. Try it with the Air Lock Foam Indicators in our “Extras” section.
