Re: Egg Sucking leach patterns?
One pattern that is getting some play recently is the Moal Leech, if you Google that you'll get some you tube tying videos.
I used to make them on standard salmon hooks with a trailing bunny strip but have been swayed to making them on a cut shank and then trailing a #6 Mustad egg hook by stringing it through the bunny strip on 15 pound Spyder Wire. This style acts a whole lot more like a real leech and has good hooking qualities as if you don't make them too long. 3" works well, with or with out the orange head.
