The balanced leech is now a stillwater staple imitating leeches and other swimmers in the water. If you want to effectively fish any big water like lakes, ponds, etc. you must have an assortment of these in your fly box.
Tied on a 90 degree jig hook with a body extender (pin) and brass bead head, this fly will sit horizontal in the water column under an indicator just like the real thing. All of our balanced leeches are tied with signature stillwater dubbing blends with multiple colors making the fly more dimensional. There are also two strips of flashabou in the tail to give the fly just enough flash to the fish without being overbearing.
