The egg sucking leach seems to often get over looked these days, I love’em, they catch the hell out steelhead and everything else in the river under a huge variety of conditions. I saw a fly many years ago that I believe was a pattern of Bob Pigot’s called a rainy day leach. It was an egg sucker with a big multicolored head. I am sure it wasn’t all that much like this one, I don’t really remember it that well. But that was the idea behind this one, just a real simple to tie pattern that fish will really eat.
There were more big fish around the last two weeks than I have seen in a long time, this week things have gotten back to reality, plenty of hook ups but a lot less “Holy Shit” fish. Any way good fishing over all. Oh, almost forgot March 10th and 11th have opened up, so if you know anyone who wants to go fishing have them shoot me an e-mail.
