Head Turner Leech Fly Tying Recipe and Video

Head Turner Leech Fly Tying Recipe and Video

Here we have a simple balanced leech using a tungsten Head Turner bead from Pro-Tyer. These beads make tying a balanced fly super easy as there is no pin needed. Flies like this are a must-have in my boxes. I’ve used this fly and slight variations with equal success while stripping and retrieving in moving water and when I hang them under an indicator on the Stillwaters. Now is a great time to fish a pattern like this if you are heading to the lakes!
