How To Tie The Balanced Ghost (Balanced Leech): Fly Tying Video

The Balanced Ghost (Balanced Leech)

The balanced leech is fished best under an indicator in stillwaters when there is some wind causing top water disturbance to give constant action and movement to your fly. 10-20 feet of water seems ideal over weed beds. Tied in many colors, this fly is great for imitating a leech or a minnow. Try tying one today!

This month for Fly Tying Month we are tying TWICE a week along with all our other sales and giveaways! Join us every Friday during March to join in on the fun of an extra fly tying tutorial! Check out our Bench Guide to learn all the details.
