Brushed Leech Pattern: Dubbed & Brushed Out

I started tying this leech pattern back in 2008 after seeing renowned B.C. stillwater angler Brian Chan demonstrating the pattern. I highlighted the pattern in 2008 and then again in 2009 on SwittersB.

I have started tying up more of the pattern for next year. I was down to less than a dozen of the flies. They are a good pattern for lakes and rivers, fished like a streamer pattern. A dubbing brush of longer synthetic fibers can be spun and dubbed, then wrapped around the shank and brushed backward. Also, strands of the dubbing fibers can be tied in, starting at the bend and additional clumps tied in progressing up the shank toward the eye of the hook. Each clump of strands tied in is brushed back over the previous clump of strands…smaller amounts at the rear and larger clumps toward the front.

Fly Tying: Dubbed Thorax

Dubbing and Bead SB

A size 14 pupa hook has an abdomen of dyed peacock herl. I blended hare’s ear and chopped up synthetic flash material into a fine blend and used it to form a dubbing noodle to wrap around the thorax area…right behind a multi-colored bead (blue, red, green).
