    Purple w/red or pink ..egg sucking leech. Wow with all these choices have you narrowed it down...I'm sure they are all good but if you are more specific in terms of where you will be fishing and when..I'm sure many will give you a better direction on what type of flies to tie. Good Luck :) :)

    The one that broke my Sauk river curse this morning-The Fur Biscuit-Named after a old cat I used to torment,that furry bitch,it's like a Intruder but with rabbit instead of pheasent.
    O.G. Intruder's, Exasperater's and the Boss are also fav's

    The one at the end of your line. The week I was on the O.P. this last month showed that to me. Same river same runs, several hook-ups all on different flies. O.P. rivers big black flies. Profile is what it's about.

    If you get to southern Oregon (upper Rogue River) here are the patterns you want to load up on. All simple, all very effective.

    One other local fly is a 'take off' of the "Otis Bug" called "Agent Orange." Also very effective, especially for winter run fish.:ray1:
