Black Bear Leech tied by navigator36 Fly Type: Attractor Pattern
Target Species: Trout
Recommended Region: Central Canada
Black bear hair
3x long streamer hook size 12-8
Black uni thread 3/0
Black holographic flashabou
Tie on the mohair at rear.
Cement threaded hook shank
and wrap mohair forward almost to eye.
Add even clump of black bear hair as wing.
Tie in two or four strands of the black flashabou.
Form head, cement and that's it.
As far as leech imitations go, which I don't fish too often,
this one has worked in the past for brookies in smaller sizes. Trying it in a larger size this year for big browns.
