Stu’s Tube Leech – Tying Instructions
Last week we dressed a simple but super effective bunny leech pattern, the Miles Davis Leech. Today we are going to be doing a tube version, which we can crank out even quicker. There are some other advantages to tying it on a tube as well, which we will discuss later.
I like to tie my tube bunny strips on the shortish side, somewhere around 3 inches long. If the river conditions change and the river rises or colors up, it’s then pretty easy just to stack the two tubes on top of each other to create a much larger profile that the fish can see. This saves you having to have lots of different fly boxes with lots of different size options.
