The Egg Sucking Leech on steroids! The Black Pearl lead eye version lets you fish salmon on a floating line, gives the fly extra action in the water and the sparkle chenille gives it a little extra pop. In #2 and #4 it is a very effective salmon and steelhead fly. The #6 is the all-around trout player. The #8 is one of the best lake flies for cutthroat trout going.
The most famous fly in Alaska and rightfully so. The Black Egg Sucking Leech is particularly deadly on steelhead or salmon that don't want a bright colored fly. A good change-up fly to have in the box.
