    Default Gluttonous Leech SBS

    Author, guide, and flygal, April Vokey



    was generous enough to allow me to share this recipe and SBS for her Gluttonous Leech pattern.

    Recipe:
    Eyes
    silver flat braid
    Polar Bear dubbing
    Jungle Cock
    Marabou
    Rhea
    Teal

    Put your eyes on the hook.



    Tie in the silver flat braid.



    Put your polar bear dubbing in a dubbing loop and tie in.



    Tie in two long stemmed jungle cock.



    Tie in the tip of a single marabou feather and wrap the feather several times until it fans over the dubbing.



    Stack (or peel and wrap for additional volume) clipped rhea fibres and stack so the fibres cover the entire diameter of the hook.



    Peel a teal (or guinea, barred wood duck, gadwall, mallard, blue-eared pheasant etc) feather and hackle it over the rhea.



    Tie in jungle cock cheeks. Whip-finish, dress head as desired, crack open beer.

    Nice looking subjects on all counts.
    Gluttonous Leech SBS sounds like the name of a law firm though.
