Walleye Special Leech

Here we will be tying the Walleye Special Leech. As a matter of fact, this fly is not relation the no people personally. But I found it funny what I saw on news here about those guy adding weight to their fish with sinkers. This is a great pattern for brown trout both in running water or still water on a dead drift since this leech doesn't move fast. Every year I catch some trout on this pattern tied on hook in size 6-8. It's possible to fish the fly under and indicator too. The UV flash does also a lot for the fly. The fly mainly catches brown trout and seatrout here in Iceland. It's a good pattern, simple to tie and totally worth keeping a few in your box when you go fishing (or to a fishing competition) LOL

(Competition weight - if you want to can add a lead sinker to the fly for a competition) I guess it's not a good idea..... Plus you may need a thicker rod than the normal fly rod to cast it).

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.
