There are many "wormy" looking creatures that live in aquatic environments. Most lakes and weedy streams have dense populations of leeches and aquatic worms. During much of the time they are buried in the substrate or bottom vegetation. However during low light conditions they often forage about where they are exposed to patrolling game fish. Trout and bass seek out these tender morsels and eat them like candy. This is especially true early in the spring before weeds start to grow. Leeches are your most important early season lake flies. If the water temperature is cold, they are most effective when fished slowly along the bottom with a sinking fly line. Don't head to your lake without some.

Bead Head Mini Leech, Black

If you only had one size and color for your earliest season fishing, make it a black size six. This fly catches fish. It is worthwhile having the Black Bead Head Leech in all of the sizes. Sometimes trout display a preference for a certain size. Like everything else, leeches start out small and grow bigger.

Bead Head Mini Leech, Olive

Some leeches are olive colored, this probably helps them blend in with aquatic vegetation. It is well known that a wiggly fly that is an inch long and green is a high percentage searching fly in most desert lakes early in the spring.

Idyl's Red Head Leech
There is no arguing the success of long skinny wormy looking things when fishing in lakes. This fly fishes most of the year, but is often at its best when crawled the bottom with a very slow hand-twist retrieve.
