Happy Halloween everyone. Phil Rowley just released a new tying video to his YouTube Channel. His new video is of a Baby Vampire Leech aka The Billy Munster. The originator of the Vampire Leech is Todd Oishi. The Canadian Llama Company has come out with a new bead design called the Tungsten Head Turner Bead. The idea is the bead is a tear drop shape and it will invert the hook and the bead also nearly balances the fly without using a pin and tungsten bead to extend the hook shank so it will hang horizontally. As you will see with Phil's video, by using a clinch knot; you can hang the leech horizontally by placing a clinch knot just right!
In Alberta, we can fish with three flies. I have talked to Phil and he loves matching the Baby Vampire (and his Baby Bruised Leech) with a Blob!
Take a look at the video!
