The Hellfire Leech by Johnny Mac

 We are moving back into the time of year when I will spend as much time in front of my vice as I will out on the river. With the Brown Trout spawning season upon us my first thoughts were of an egg sucker. This is a very simple leech pattern that popped into my head. The main body of this fly does have two materials palmered at the same time. Lay the Mirror Wrap down the back side of the Zonker strip and palmer them at the same time. Let me know how she fishes for ya. Until next time, good luck and tight lines.

 Tread: Danville 210 flat waxed nylon, Black

 Hook: Gamakatsu 2/0 Jig 90 Heavy Wire ( Round Bend )

 Body: Magnum Cut Rabbit Zonker, Leech Red; Mirror Wrap, Purple

 Collar: EP Sparkle Brush, Black/ Red

 Head: Spirit River Hot Bead, 1/4\" Hot Orange
