Big Fish Leech - Seal Bugger March 21 2014, 0 Comments

Big fish often take small flies.  It's true.  But sometimes to consistently target large fish, you need to upsize your fly.  Match the largest food items in a lake and your chances of catching the largest fish in the lake go up.

 

With that, we tied a bugger that combines different colours, uses a black and brown marabou tail for motion, pearl flash, black, brown and green seals fur with added sparkle for the body, a red wire rib, palmered hackle with a nice marabou head, and red thread head as a final hot spot.  This one is about 3".  It has a large profile, has incredible movement, and really disturbs the water when stripped.  Not the sexiest fly around, but then a big real leech is hardly sexy either...We suggest upsizing your tippet before tying one on!
