BMW (Brian's Marabou Wiggler) Leech

BMW-Brian's Marabou Wiggler (Designed by Brian Chan)

Hook: Daiichi 1760 #12-#14
Thread: MFC 8/0 or UTC 70, Color to Compliment Body
Tail: Marabou
Rib: UTC Ultra Wire, Gold or Silver
Body: Marabou
Bead: Tungsten, 3/32" (2.4 MM) Silver or Gold

Brian Chan’s BMW is a must have stillwater pattern. Presented as a micro leech most often beneath an indicator this pattern is a great ‘start the day’ choice or during the early spring and late fall over shallow shoals. Tie this fly in a variety of colors including black, maroon (claret), and shades of olive. Mottled marabou versions are also good options.

A black with either a silver rib/bead or gold rib/combination of this fly has also worked extremely well when trout are focused on chironomid pupa but a standard match the hatch approach proves inconsistent at best. Hanging what seems an out of proportion size 12 or even size 14 BMW has saved the day for me too often to be a random event.

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.
