Leeches feed on salmon and trout eggs; both are winter favorites for many species of fish. Our hothead leeches present as a naturalistic egg-sucking leech pattern, which has proven effective for steelies and other trout, char, and salmon as well. This pattern features a combination of olive and black materials, with a distinctive hot spot or "hothead" that adds an extra element of attraction. The Hothead Olive/Black Leech is tied with meticulous attention to detail and premium quality materials, making it a reliable choice for fly fishing enthusiasts.

The Hothead Olive/Black Leech is a versatile fly pattern that can be used in a variety of fly fishing scenarios. It is particularly effective in stillwater environments such as lakes and ponds, where leeches are prevalent and provide a significant food source for fish. This fly can be used throughout the year, but it tends to excel during periods when fish are actively feeding on leeches or when other patterns fail to entice strikes. Fish it with a slow, steady retrieve or by incorporating occasional pauses to imitate the natural movement of leeches in the water. The hot spot or hothead on this fly adds a trigger point that attracts the attention of fish, making it even more enticing. The Hothead Olive/Black Leech is a go-to pattern for targeting trout, bass, and other freshwater species that feed on leeches.
