Leeches - Oh my!

Hi folks, just thought i'd show the Simi-Seal Leeches I have been tying as of late. These are a killer streamer at all times of the year....... I tie them in; black, brown and olive...

Olive Arizona Simi-Seal material tied on a Size 12 in 2X long, 3.5mm brass bead.
See my old video on how I tie it here...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ4A9VM0FtQ


Here I am netting a nice Yellowstone Cutthroat, yeah he fell for a olive Simi-Seal Leech....

Doing some fly tying...

It's been a crazy winter here in NY with warmer than usual weather and little snow. I've been itching to get out on my creeks but it just hasn't happened yet..... I seriously injured my left elbow on my casting arm back on August 5th, 2016 out in Montana while fly fishing. Taking a fall on a big arse rock. Many doctors and surgeons visits later and I am still dealing with a tricep and bursa sack problem and elbow pain. Thus the lack of fishing reports since the injury.

Anyway, I hope to get out on the water soon, regardless, this is getting ridicules.....
I NEED to go fishing!

I've been tying two patterns this week, beetles and streamers....... two killer patterns for Brown and Brook trout. Beetles are an excellent summer terrestrial pattern, often overlooked by fly fishers. The Joffee Jewel Streamer is a killer in the Late Winter and Early Spring seasons when the trout are looking to put on weight fast...
