    This is an impressive fly!! I think this would be a real fish catcher here on the East side. Randy could you please post a recipe and materials used. I would really like to tie some of these up in a few different colors. Are these weighted I did not see the telltale red eye on the hook??

    Yes, Jesse These are weighted (I got lazy marking them)w/ 10 wraps of .020 lead wire. This is the same fly as the stick leach. wet this fly and it has slightly more bulk than the stick leach. It is made with the same dubbing blend of : Red,Wine,Slate,Orange,Green,Olive,Black,brown acetate floss made on a dubbing rope of .060 stainless steel on my "poor mans dubbing machine" (fly tying forum). To make this into a stick leach simply "paint it from front to back with a brush dipped in Acetone and let dry. The stick leach also has the same amount of lead in it. I only included this fly in this time to show the "before and after" The "After" is the killer although this is pretty tasty looking in the water too. I blended the colors with the "natural Leach in mind. This was a blend that I came up with while in Kamloops. tight lines!

    One other thing that I forgot to mention that I can see in this photo. Once in awhile (here for instance) I'll add a few SMALL strands of Peacock herl to the dubbing brush. The herl does not/will not melt when you paint the Acetone on but will add Glitter to the pattern.
