Dead drifting a leech can yield some very large fish. It's a great source of protien and a good meal for them. I also like to dangle these in lakes below an inidicator. I don't play into the whole balanced leech game. This leech is pretty well balanced as is and it's deadly. Try some for yourself! This leech is tied on a size 8 jig hook with a 3.8mm slotted tungsten bead and is 1.5 inches long.
