Brian’s Magic Brown Leech
Brian’s Magic Brown Leech was designed for the finicky fish of Sheridan Lake, BC. The pattern works extremely well when fish are spooky and want a subtle, non-flashy leech pattern.
Brian’s Blood Leech
One of Brian Chan’s favourite leeches is this blood leech. Most lakes contain these blood red leeches and are a staple trout diet from ice-off through to ice over. Can be fished on an indicator or a full sink line using a slower, erratic retrieve
Brian’s Icebreaker Leech
Early into the fishing season, Brian Chan noticed many more lighter coloured leeches present in our local lakes, so he developed the ice breaker leech. We have found this pattern is effective throughout the year but most effective in lakes that contain lighter coloured leeches. Can be fished on an indicator or a full sink line using a slower, erratic retrieve.
Brian’s Ruby Eyed Blood Leech
Fans of the show have seen Don use this pattern for years, as it is one of his go-to lake patterns. This pattern works great after a chironomid hatch or when fish are cruising the weed beds looking for an easy meal. Don has also used this pattern in rivers during the summer months when the fish are holding in the fast water runs. Best used on a clear, intermediate sink line or floating line with an indicator, over the weeds or a sink-tip line on rivers.
Roche Lake Special
The name says it all! This fly was developed for the Rainbows at Roche Lake, BC and has been effective in many other BC lakes. This fly is best fished in shallower water with a clear intermediate sinking line or hanging off an indicator in deeper water.
Malcolm’s Stump Lake Leech
Malcolm Ruddick developed this leech pattern for Stump Lake near Kamloops, BC. This pattern works great when lighter coloured leeches are present but we’ve also found its a killer imitating smaller baitfish. Can be fished on an indicator or with short, fast strips to imitate a baitfish.
