Tying The Pond Leech

Pond Leech


The Pond Leech is tied like all Mohair/Marabou leeches, with the only distinction being it is the most effective color combination I have found for still-water.  Over the years it has replaced the wooly-buggers and other leech patterns in my pond boxes almost completely.
