    My first attempt at tying them. Looking forward to getting them wet! Anyone else like to tie this pattern?

    I've been known to tie a few................hundred.

    I use zonker strips for the majority of mine.

    Looks good! Go to a heavy-duty hook and they'll work for Salmon this Fall. Use Chartreuse for the "egg" and it's money, according to one of my friends.

    You can never go wrong with a good leech pattern.
    (not to hijack the thread too much but I posted the second box in the for sale section).
