Bleeding Schlappen Leech

The Bleeding Schlappen Leech is a fly I developed for fishing shallow to medium depth lakes in Alberta. I fish the fly in water 8-20 feet deep and like to fish the fly by casting it out letting it sink and using a slow retrieve to bring it in. I get some aggressive strikes with this fly pattern.

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.
