The Pine Squirrel Leech is a classic. It works in still-water, rivers and in about every nook and cranny on earth where fish live. Here in Colorado, we fish this fly in various colors year-round, both unweighted and with weight. In this video, Davis James ties a natural Squirrel Leech just as we sell it in the shop.
