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!
