    All leeches must be size 12 or smaller and should not be longer than an inch in length.

    I've been fishing micro leeches like crazy in lakes and they far out produce just about anything I use. I tend to use scud or jig hooks with tungsten beads and hang them under indicators and my patterns will match that theme, but your welcome to tie whatever.

    Number of tiers and flies depends on the interest as does the due date (micro leeches work year long).
    Otherwise all other rules apply, although to be honest I don't need you to toe tag your flies, we can all check the swap photos to find out who tied what.

    any idea on a due date? this sounds really fun, micro leeches under indicators have become huge for me this year already and become one of my favorite ways to fish stillwater. in fact your jig leeches from the winter swap were the ones that started it all for me. count me in, just need to order some things in the next few days.

    Due date will depend on when things fill up. I figure a month after we fill up should give people enough time.

    Count me in if due around the end of July. These are pretty quick to tie so number due doesn't matter that much to me. I don't focus and fish these often but always looking to improve my arsenal.
    Got everything to tie, maybe some more scud hooks...haven't used jig heads but will see if the local fly shop has some.

    Sounds like fun, I'd love to join as long as due date is around July 20 or later.

    I'll sign up with a white/cream/grey alpaca hair (depending on what I have) leech on a jig hook.

    In. I'm not sure on the exact pattern yet. Probably something with a micro zonker strip tail.
