Leech Lust Reconsidered…

 

 

In October 2006, Jeff Morgan wrote a very thought provoking newsletter on Westfly~Oregon re his extensive findings on Leeches’ place in the trout’s diet. He challenges our use of sizes, weighting locations, colors and presentations. This is a very interesting article and at a minimum it makes me affirm the following: tie more multicolored mini leeches and don’t jonly use long strips when imitating leeches. I wonder when we use Buggers and utilize longer, fast strips if we are not imitating baitfish rather than leeches, but don’t always realize that is what we are doing. Check out the article a page or so down into the newsletter. Check out Westfly for great NW US info on all facets of flyfishing and tying.  Jeff was a very creative and refreshing force while at Westfly. He now teaches at a Mid-West university.
