Fly Tying & Fishing: Little Fort Leech (Variation)

little fort leech variation swittersb

Yes, a version of the ubiquitous Woolly Bugger, The Little Fort Leech. Without question, and for whatever reasons, the best dark WB I have ever used. Yes a basic black or dark brown WB will produce, as will almost any colored body combination given the right location and presentation. However, this pattern can be fished wit confidence on stillwaters and rivers. Simple to tie, this variation has a variegated marabou tail rather than the traditional Black marabou with a bright splotch of red hackle or marabou tied atop the black. The abdomen/thorax is lightly palmered with dark brown hackle. It is unweighted save the bead head. I tied this fly on a stout size 8 hook. I came upon this pattern about 20 years ago in Little Fort, British Columbia at a fly shop and have never stopped tying this very basic fly.

Fly Tying: Dragon Fly Pattern Options

There are reportedly 5800+ species of  Dragon flies on this planet. For fly fishing purposes, it can be simplified down to one simple concept (dare I say that) and that is re the shape of the nymph. Longer, sleeker or shorter, rounder. Both styles of nymphs are predatory and excellent patterns to deploy beneath the water’s surface particularly in lakes, or slower, backwaters of rivers.

Fishing With Rod (British Columbia Flyfishing Resource)

 

http://www.fishingwithrod.com/ (It isn’t only flyfishing, but definitely provides good info re BC and beyond destinations. Rod appears to be an emerging, creative force in his own right. Check out his Cutthroat efforts in SE B.C.)
