DDH Leech Variant

The DDh Leech was developed by Manitoba fly angler Stu Thompson. Stu used a mix of rabbit dubbing enhanced with Diamond Dubbing Holographic dub. This gave the fly a full body and a little bit of flash to catch the attention of passing predators. The fly was initially tied in pursuit of walleye but has since gone on to net some 80+ species of fish. Trout, bass, walleye, pike, channel cats, carp, freshwater drum, sauger, and goldeye are among some of the species the fly has fooled.

this variation of the fly uses straight Diamond Dubbing and isn't blended with rabbit. The result is a sparser less dense bodied fly. I tie this either as a leech or a baitfish pattern. I use bead chain for the leeches and usually weighted eyes for the minnow patterns. I vary the colors for leeches in black, brown, olive, purple and claret. For baitfish, I tend to add silver and gold to the mix.
