Fritz Leech

Cheech - October 2022

For the past two years I have been trying to come up with the ultimate leech in regards to simplicity. I would always look at my fly boxes and realize that I had WAY too many leech variations, and I wanted one fly that could be stripped, fished under an indicator, or fished in a midge tip fly line, etc. This is the bug that I ultimately settled on, and it’s been an absolute killer in my boxes. Some of my favorite colors are olive (as seen), black with chartreuse bead, or claret/wine with gold or metallic pink bead. These have caught picky fish everywhere I’ve gone, and I have a box full of them now!
