Black Egg Sucking Leech - This is one of my confidence flies for fishing rainbows. It is extremely versatile and can be fished in a variety of ways. I use this fly at ice off fishing still waters under and indicator. When water temps are cold, fish prefer a catatonic (no movement) presentation. I usually run a chironomid under it, or a damsel nymph. As water temps warm up, it works good on a slow erratic retrieve. In rivers, you can run it dead drift on a nymph rig or swing it. This fly fishes good all season long and across a variety of species. I have hooked walleye, bass, rainbows, steelhead, browns, and tiger trout on this fly. I find it is most productive when there are natural eggs in the water. Add in a black saddle hackle palmered up the body for faster retrieves of for swinging. - fly fishing video channel - Global FlyFisher
