Leech patterns are favorites among stillwater fishing specialists, and this pattern tends to be a common "go-to" for many. The Simi Seal Leech, created by John Rohmer, is a great fly tying pattern for everyone due to its relative ease. Variations are absolutely possible and encouraged, hence one of the reasons I tie this pattern in white to represent minnows in local waters.
The hook used in this tutorial is the Allen Fly Fishing S402BL, a great barbless hook that is 2xl, perfect for streamers and longer nymphs. They can be found online: http://www.allenflyfishing.com/n212bl-nymph-streamer-2xl-barbless/
