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 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.
