The Dubbing Leech is another great fly for beginners. This pattern is easy, inexpensive and a great fly to cast stream side.
With this in mind, the beginner can afford to lose flies in the brush or stream and concentrate on enhancing casting techniques.
I have used this fly pattern both heavily weighted and un-weighted with fantastic results and great to use warm or cold water. This fly also works well on either a turned down or straight eye hook. I have caught trout of every size and even a few bass with this particular pattern.
(Use your favorite brand*)
– Dai Riki #210 hook size 2/0 – #10 (hook in a – 2, 3, or 4 extra long)
-Dubbing with sparkle or without
-Thread 3/0 or 6/0
You may also rib this fly with gold, silver, mylar, or any material you can imagine. Try using wire, tinsel or even cross-stitch floss for different effects. I have caught a lot of fish by creating new “recipes”.
