Midnight Fire Balanced Leech

Killer Color Combo

Midnight Fire Balanced Damsel
Leeches come in all sorts of colors and variations within colors, so it's never a bad thing to cover a lot of color bases when you're tying leeches. The Midnight Fire color scheme is one of my favorites that covers a good range of leech colors and the fish seem to really love.

Originally shown to me as a chenille color by my late friend Dennis Brakke, I tend to have more midnight fire style leeches and buggers in my boxes than a lot of other mixes. And thanks to our buddy John Rohmer, the dubbing jam master himself, we've got a few dubbing mixes now that feature this color combo.

So, as similar to one of my other favorite Midnight Fire patterns we did here, this one is tied balanced style but has a dual color tail with a collar from a recent squirrel mix we did. It's a fun tie, so give it a try.

Note that while I use the awesome squirrel dub mix from a previous video, you can also use straight diamond dub in Blood Leech if you prefer. I still like the color, flash and texture variation of squirrel but you'll be ok with diamond dub if you need to.
