The Red Mohair Leech is a classic and versatile fly pattern that's highly effective in enticing a variety of freshwater gamefish, including trout, bass, and panfish. Its red mohair body and marabou tail create a lifelike profile in the water, resembling aquatic insects and small baitfish.
To fish with the Red Mohair Leech, cast it into the water and let it sink to the desired depth. You can use different retrieval methods to imitate the movement of prey. A slow, steady retrieve can mimic the motion of a swimming leech or baitfish, while intermittent twitches can simulate a struggling or injured creature. Experiment with retrieval speeds and pauses to see what triggers the most strikes based on the fish's activity level.
This fly is particularly effective in stillwater environments like ponds and lakes but can also be used in slow-moving sections of rivers and streams. It's a valuable addition to your fly box, offering versatility and success when targeting a range of freshwater species.
