Friday Fly Day - Hot Head Leech

Fish like eggs.... And they LOVE woolly buggers so some smart cookie combined the two and here we have it! Bless him.

Heave and leave on a Hi D at the rivermouth, retrieved on a fast intermediate across the flats or swung across the river these could just be the ultimate winter time fly. The fish think so!

Unweighted for ease of casting, let your line, deep soft weight, or polyleader set the depth to avoid hooking bottom when swinging through the shallows.

I fish the black in most conditions, especially in clear water but never hesitate to turn to the fuchsia, or purple if things are a little slow or need an added incentive to get moving.
