I have never been happy with the looks of my leech patterns even though they do catch fish. I just wish they looked better to me. I found this leech pattern the other day and it answered many questions I had on how to make my leeches look better. It turned out to be a lot easier for me to get the "look" I wanted for my leech patterns. I do not want anyone to think that this pattern is my creation. It is just a pattern another tier used and I liked it and wanted to share it in case others might want to tie up some and try. I decided to call it a "leech with a collar".
