Ask a bunch of fly fishermen what their dirtiest fly is and we bet a good number of them will say the egg sucking leech. It’s simple: freshwater gamefish can’t resist eggs, and they’re drawn to the high visibility yet natural appeal of black. The silhouette of black, the motion of the tail, and the orange egg effect make for a jig that fish just can’t resist. This pattern is an excellent choice for pressured lakes, and it does double duty on salmon and steelhead.
