    Here are a couple of pictures of a real leech and one of my favorite imitations.

    Not at all, the fully stretched-out leech in the picture is close to four inches long, the flies are about 3 to 3 1/2 inches. One year I had a twenty-plus fish day at Chopaka, all on such leech patterns.

    I've never tied Glenn's leech in red, but I think I've tied it in maroon. I've definitely tied it in purple as well.

    Glenn's leech has saved my bacon on technical (moody) B.C. lakes, lakes with huge fish.

    Now I want to tie it in red!

    I`m not familiar with the Glenn`s leech , but by far , my favorite leech for fishing the local lakes is a dubbed red mohair leech , with a black micro conehead . No flash .

    IMO, bunny provides a fuller more visible profile in low light conditions. I use a lot of woolley buggers for steelhead at this time of year, but when the light gets sparse I throw on small egg sucking bunny leeches.
