Larry’s Egg Sucking Leech Fly Tying Tutorial

Leech patterns are a staple in our fly boxes whether we are fishing rivers or lakes most of the year. Spring time rolls around and fish start to spawn meaning other critters are looking to score a snack. This is were the egg sucking leech comes into play. Trout get highly aggressive and protective over their eggs and will definitely munch down on anything trying to steal them.

Material List:

Hook: Moonlit Streamer Hook #4

Tail: Bright Copper Solar Flare

Body: Long Cut Hydro Hackle in Black

Eyes: Large Bead Chain

Egg: Mcfly Foam in Chartreuse and Orange


Killer spring/fall pattern that gets the job done!
