Being stuck at home during Covid, I turned to fly tying to keep me sane. I dabbled a bit before Covid and tied some patterns like Wooly Buggers and your standard go-to's, but now I am super addicted to it. So far I think this is the most challenging fly I have tied. A balanced leech. I love fishing balanced leeches, and buy them all the time. I can't wait for an opportunity to try fishing my own take on the pattern. What is challenging about it is tying it to get the balance just right. Here is my first iteration! Hopefully they start to look better as I tie more.
