Fruit Roll Up Leech Fly Tying Tutorial


Pattern developed by ERFT friend Willy Self, this hands down is our favorite leech pattern. Incredibly effective in most any stillwater situation, also a proven winner when it comes to Carp. We like using STS dubbing for the body, but any combination of leech material can be used, just a matter of personal preference. Most effective sizes range from size 6-10 primarily black or olive in color.

Hook - TMC 5263 or Ahrex NS110 For Heavier Gauge (Great Carp Hook)
