Mohair Leech, Black
Black is a universal color, especially early in the season while the water is still very cold. Crawl your black fly across the bottom very slowly using a very slow sinking line. This is a very effective techique, but can only be done early in the season before weeds start to grow.
Mohair Leech, Blood
The red leech can be deadly when the water is still very cold in the spring. A good method to try is to keep your boat 50-60 feet from the shore and cast your fly into the shallow edge water. Use a very slow sinking line, or a floating line so you can move the fly very slowly back to you.
Mohair Leech, Olive
This light olive fly works best after a lake warms and the weeds and algae begins to grow. This is your classic inch-and-a-half-long-and-green lake fly which is often the best size and color for your most productive alkaline desert lakes.
