Articulated Gartside Leech
Another fly from the vise of Aaron Caldwell with his take on the classic Jack Gartside Leech. The fly is tied with a Waddington shank, a method not often used, with an articulated hook. There is a great tip in this video on avoiding impromptu piercings that should come in handy. I’m thinking that this one may be a great pattern for some local bass and trout. Can’t wait to try a couple.
