The Story

A trout and salmon slayer. Big salmon, steelhead, and trout love eating eggs and leeches; why not fly fish both? Two proven flies rolled into one, the body of a wooly bugger leech with an egg pattern tied in to the head, a combination of two favorite fares of trout and salmon. Originally designed for fly fishing king salmon in Alaska.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salmon Killer Along with solo eggs, the Egg Sucking Leech was the most effective tool we had on a recent trip to the Salmon River (NY). Lit up the 8 weight all three days with this guy. Quality craftsmanship as well.
