    How can a self respecting trout pass up one of those fake meals? Gonna be hard to find one that will. Nice ties, they sure look fishy to me.

    I really like your thin, thin red leech. It looks like it could double as a bloodworm.

    Thanks. Yeah I think that little blood leech will do well. I plan to fish it 2' off the back of a larger guy. Maybe even drop it off a Chironomid. I've yet to get a fish on my own ties but I haven't been tying very long so hopefully I can bruise some gums tomoro!

    I'd like to hear how the bead blood leeches work out.

    Those bloodworms are easy and cheap. I think a 100 pack of small beads was $1.29. I'll let you know if I hook up on them. I have a feeling in the spring they will be amazing. I think I should dial down the red marabou a bit however.
