A ruby red bead like the one on the ruby eyed leech pattern has proven to be an extremely effective trigger. An extremely heavy fly we recommend using a very large indicator or beach ball to keep this one off the bottom. The balanced leech is sometimes all it takes to turn a good day, into a great one.
