Grab Leech - Sandy Candy, this is an Excellent Winter Steelhead fly. Every River has a particular color that Steelhead respond to. Pink does very well in Alaska and the Sandy River in Oregon.
Steelhead Grab Leeches are string leeches tied between two eyed shank connections. These flies swim like a snake, but are stiff enough not to wrap back over your leader when casting. (More Info)
Flies are tied with cross cut zonker rabbit strips, and generous amounts of super glue for maximum durability.
