Icewater Leech

Small and sparse, this fly makes it easier for a slow chasing rainbow or brown in cold winter temps to grab and turn on this fly. When you get a number of grabs but no hooksets on larger streamer patterns, it's time to go small. A more lethargic fish will be able to fit the hook in it's mouth a bit easier with this smaller profile streamer pattern. It's still flashy enough to get the attention of a feeding fish and will make catching fish in the dead of winter alot more tolerable.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
