Egg Sucking Leech Tube Fly

How To Tie an Egg Sucking Leech Tube Fly For Trout Spey and Steelhead - A quick and easy Egg Sucking Leech streamer for Trout Spey swinging. Trout Spey Fly Tying tutorial.
The egg sucking leech is an iconic fly that has been responsible for catching a wide range of fish species across the world. This Trout Spey streamer pattern tied on a Pro Sportfisher 40/40 tube, was designed to have the fewest "bulky" materials as possible. This fly is easy to cast, has lots of movement and is a proven fish-catcher.
Tube flies are great for trout spey and skagit casting as they are really easy flies to cast. Tube flies offer great advantages for making adjustments to hooks and hook placement (up or down and how far back you'd like them).
The materials used to tie this fly can be swapped out for your favorite egg sucking leech and trout spey fly tying materials. We love greens, blacks, browns and whites for tying this trout spey pattern. We also suggest the use of some weight at the front of the head if your fishing conditions demand the use of weighted flies.

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.
