Marabou Leech

I like fishing leeches in the spring just after ice comes off the lakes and ponds. I like to use this as a casting pattern or a trolling fly, but it also works well when dead drifted under a strike indicator on a windy day.

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.
