Like my other patterns I try to get as much movement as possible, from as many different parts of the fly as possible. Incorporating a long sparse marabou tail and both the short and long Translucent Swimming Hackle for the body, there is not a part that will not move. Most leech and bugger style flies sold on the market look great, but when put under water lack the suggestive movement that you need from a fly. With the slightest movement the Swimming Leech comes alive and is one of the most realistic flies I have ever fished. The BIG key is that you need to fray out the material with a piece of Velcro which breaks apart all of the fibers, in turn creating more movement in the water.
