    Chef, if your leeches are anything like your cookies I think we are all in for a treat. I hear from a good source that he's gonna be hawking all your outings for the cookie benefit! Triples or not, get to tying...mine are done! I've got some other swap flies to get moving on, so I can't sit back and wait.

    Hey mumbles i just remembered that the radish bash is this week. If you would rather deliver them to me then that will work as well. That goes for anyone else...if not it is all good and standard mail shipping will work just as well.

    I'm still messing around with how I want to tie these tail hook leeches. I found a better way of tying the rear hook in so it stays in line with the body. I also decided to wrap the zonker strip at the shoulder area a bit to give it a little more bulk in front. I'm undecided yet if I want to keep the conehead I put on or just tie off the front. The cone will obviously help it sink better, but it seems odd to have such a shiny head along with the dark mottled body.

    what do you think? Conehead or not?

    The fly will fish better with the conehead.
