Found in many southern tailwater rivers like the Little Red, it’s easy to overlook the leech as an important source of food for trout. Protein packed meaty morsels, leech are gobbled down by trout. This is especially true of late fall/early winter. The Bloody Black Leech pattern reminds me of a sort of wooly bugger fly masquerading in drag as a streamer fly pattern. Of course, this makes many wonder if fishing the Bloody Black Leech fly patterns should be called lechery (perish the thought...).
