Deep Creek Leech

The Deep Creek Leech is a simple steelhead pattern from Eugene, Oregon steelhead guide Matt Ramsey. Matt runs the Two Dudes Flyfishing along with Scott Nelson offering trip along the Umpqua, Deschutes and Willamette Rivers.
For the eyes on the fly I use a 4.0mm brass barbell, but for deeper runs, you may want to consider using lead. The Collar is tied with rabbit, either a zonker strip or a cross cut strip. the pattern is similar to the Hareball Leech or a Starlite Leech, 2 favorites for west coast steelhead.
