How To Tie The Red Belly Bunny Leech: Fly Tying Video

Leechy indeed! I love this pattern because of its versatility. It fishes really well in a variety of water types and really shines in deep pools and in stillwater. The conehead on this pattern partnered with a slow retrieve will help to create undulating movement that mimics a leech expanding and contracting while it swims. Or, if you are in a lazier type of mood give it a good dead drift and it can be just as effective. Simple to tie and maybe even easier to fish!
