The California 420 leech is a dank and wiry stillwater leech pattern which uses the aptly named California 420, a new blend of Arizona Mega Simi Seal dubbing. The dubbing has a base of what looks to be a dun olive and has some accents of black and red, killer colors for leech fly patterns. The “Mega” dubbing has longer fibers, and is great for leeches where you can use a dubbing loop for the body and brush it out like the DDH Leech for instance.
