    Thanks! I will, I can't afford to miss to many fish.

    I tie my "Micro Leech" on a small jig hooks size 8 and size 10. That gives them a jig action on the retrieve, very effective. I weight the bend with non lead wire and just tie the body material over the weight. I've used them successfully in lakes and streams. Been very effective on Rocky Ford. Pictured one is a size #8.

    Micro leeches hung under an indicator are a total waste of time. Last time I tried one at Henrys Lake I only caught one fish.

    Micro leeches under an indicator. Never tried that but I might now. I like "jigging" my micro leeches.
