Lightning Leech

$3.50

The Lightning Leech is a deadly little leech pattern that imitates a wide array of forage items.  It’s the ultimate fly—its simple, durable, and fools selective trout looking for a large meal. The Lighting Leech is constructed from a brass cone head, a pine squirrel strip, schlappen, and some polar chenille, all the components for a realistic leech imitation.  The goal in mind was to create a slim profile, with life-like action combining some flash as a “trigger”. If you enjoy fishing streamers—this pattern is a must-have for your streamer box!

Fishing Strategies:

Leeches provide trout with more bang for their buck and they rarely refuse the opportunity to eat one. You can opt to dead drift a leech or strip it as a streamer. When we dead drift a leech, we recommend using it as an attactor and trail a small midge or mayfly behind it. In most cases we strip the Lighten Leech with a traditional down and across delivery. We have found that a slow retrieve produces the best results, but don’t be afraid to think outside the box from time to time and mix things up with a quick retrieve.

“I have caught fish on all 3 colors of the Lightning Leech. They are well tied (durable), balanced perfectly, and catch a bunch of fish! Short quick strips are deadly! My favorite has been the white Lightening Leech. The visual of seeing a fish chase it down and attack it is awesome ! The Lightening Leech is my new go to streamer!” John Keefover, Professional Guide
