I've been tying different versions of this Muddler Moal Leech fly over the years. Now I'm happy with this new pattern. It has a hidden nickel bead to help sink it enough so it swims with movement, but can be swung over snaggy terrain.
Fly is 2 - 2.25 inches long (small for a moal leech - summer size). Tied on braid line with #2 SSW Owner hook. Tied with PVC hook holder with Flashabou for tail, Crosscut Rabbit Fur, Micro Barred Voodoo Fibers, Black Deer Belly Hair, Shank, and braid line.

This silhouette with the large spun deer belly hair head gives it a sculpin minnow look.
