This Leech Pattern was developed by Mike Kruse of the Missouri Department of Conservation. This particular version was developed at T. Hargrove Fly Fishing, Inc. Shop and is distinguished by a specific mohair color developed by Tommy. The mohair yarn for this pattern can only be purchased at the shop. Stop by and pick up a pack of the yarn. It has proven to be effective on any water for trout (Might even catch a smallmouth).
