Double Tail Leech

I've always seen black streamers as leech patterns, however many of them are narrow and tall or just plain fat all the way around. I tried to solve this problem by using a double tail zonker strip and connecting them together to get a wider, but yet still flat fly, much like a leech really is. It seemed to work great, and the fish love it too! It swims more like a leech, with an up and down motion, rather than side to side. The fly all around is a hit for my local river, and I am sure others will be able to use it in their rivers as well. This also could work great in lakes for bass and other fish that eat leeches.

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.
