Egg Sucking Leech
My take on a classic streamer pattern. A must have fly for just about any kind of streamer fishing for trout, steelhead and salmon. I make this fly in black, olive, brown and rusty brown colors. This one is tied with Woolly Sparkle Dub in the color Black Widow. The head is a tungsten bead.
