The Hot Headed Leech is quite the versatile fly pattern - it can be fished under an indicator, stripped like a bugger, and it can be tied in a multitude of different color combinations. Fish it under an indicator on the North Platte, or strip it as a bugger on your favorite trout stream. Whatever you do with it, this is a fly to definitely have a few of in your box!
