Egg Sucking Leech – Purple

Egg Sucking Leech – Purple


The most famous fly in Alaska and rightfully so! The Egg Sucking Leech has probably accounted for more fish landed than any other fly in Alaska. In smaller sizes it is a trout and Dolly Varden favorite. In #2 or #4 it is a salmon slayer.


While this fly is weighted with lead wraps under the body, if you need to fish it deep a sink tip line is your best bet.

Brad Elfers has been a fly fishing & river guide in Alaska since 1993.He opened Alaska Fly Fishing Goods in 1998.
