Loopy Leech – fly tying – video

This is the illegitimate offspring from a romance between a Fur Leech and a Woolly Bugger. Not really rocket science – but the dubbing loop technique give a lot of options for mixing colours, structures and materials. I use Woolly Sparkle Dub, which is a natural wool dubbing with some subtle sparkle in it. You can experiment with other dubbings, hair and feathers as well. This colour combination is great for trout fishing from dusk til dawn. I tie an articulated version as well, typically using a smaller hook at the rear.
