Fly of the Month - March, 2018

Printable Version

The Mini-Leech is a great pattern when fishing a small leech pattern. It has a lot of movement in the water and can be tied with or without a bead. Probably best tied on a size 16 hook, but can be tied on other sizes. This pattern can be tied in a variety of colors to include olive, rusty-brown, black, purple, gray or others. Fish usually hit this pattern with a hard strike so a little heaver leader is often used.
