Pyramid Lake Balanced Leech - Martini Olive

Size: 8

Fish Specie: Trout, Bass

Fishing Destinations: Pyramid Lake, Jurassic Lake

Olive, well you really going to go fishing without an olive fly? We gave this fly a name because the chenille is the same as the chenille on the Martini Olive wooly worm and the red bug band is also very similar to the red thread used as well. Like the white version of this fly, the red band is used to imitate a gill plate on small minnows.



An idea by legendary fly tier Phil Rowley has been an important part of our Pyramid lake boxes for years. The leeches (size 8-10) are the standard sizes for fishing under an indicator at Pyramid and just about any Stillwater on the planet. The Minnows (Size 4-6) are really versatile and can be fished under a large indicator, jigged vertically or stripped as well. The incorporation of a Bug Band ads tons of contrast and added balance to the flies. The Balanced flies are being used all over to catch Bass, Panfish, Trout and many other species of fish.
