Balanced Squirrel Leech - Olive

Montana Fly Company


The Balanced Squirrel Leech is a more full, more robust looking balanced leech pattern compared to some others.  The squirrel strip is full of movement and will swim and pulse like crazy when fished hanging under a strike indicator and suspended horizontally.  Let the surface chop keep the fly undulating in one spot and wait for the indicator to go down.  Great fun and very effective for trout and bass. 

The Olive Balanced Squirrel Leech is tied on a size 8 hook and is approximately 2.5 inches in total length.  The size 12 is approximately 2 inches in total length.
