Super simple Marabou Leach
I had to take these photos for another project so I thought I would throw them up here. This is a very simple trailer hook style leach pattern that I fish all winter for steelhead. I like using marabou in this one because its cheap, quick, moves well and casts and sinks better than bunny.
The fly is tyed on a 1/0 shank with a #1 Gamakatsu octopus trailer, the trailer line is 15# Maxima. The fly is tyed with a large tungsten cone and wrapped with .25 lead wire.

Double wrapped smooth and ready for lead wire
Palmer up and rib your hackle
Tie in another piece of marabou and Palmer behind the cone, add some flash.
Tie’em in a bunch of different colors
