Feenstra's Halloween Leech

Kevin Feenstra's passion is swinging flies for migratory fish in Michigan.

He resides in Newaygo, Michigan, guiding nearly 200 days a year on the Muskegon River (and fishing whenever he can). His steelhead, smallmouth, and trout flies have been published in books, magazines, and online. He has written articles for international, national, and regional fly fishing magazines.

The Halloween Leech a black and copper swung fly for steelhead. Often times, when fishing two clients, it is fished interchangeably with the grapefruit leech. It is a safe bet that one of these two patterns will take fish. The Halloween Leech is at its best in October-December and again in the spring.
