An absolutely wicked silver salmon fly! Our good friends at Angler’s Alibi on the Alagnak River tipped us off to this color combo. A Hot Pink S&B String Leech with a Chartreuse Head. Throw in a little wisp of Chartreuse on the tail end and the S.T.S. Leech was born. Swing this bad boy or strip it in and hang on.
The Alaskan S.T.S. Leech (Super Tungsten String Leech, aka the Alaskan Salmon, Trout and Steelhead Leech) incorporates a little extra weight with tungsten barbell eyes. This allows the S.T.S. Leech to dance a jig as he strips across the current.
