Practiced on a shrimp for Steelhead and messing around with a stand up leech for Walleye.

RE: Shrimp &amp; Leech
Thanks. Jig is  1/4 oz Do-it HD stand up. Many times we'r fishing 20-30' for wally on the bottom in current. Might have to go to 3/8 too. Shrimp is just on a salmon hook I had laying around. I may make the eye's out of #2 or #4 lead shot to add some weight as these are just beads on mono.

Exceptional ties. A small tube jig head fill & drill mold modified for heavy wire hooks could be a weighted foundation for the shrimp, tho the tie would have to be flipped for hook point upright drift. Alternately, I've seen some weighted scud hooks offered online, maybe a JC member or few can make em.

Your leech tie resembles the popular Nightmare steelhead pattern - do you think that jig could be useful for them?

Thanks for the compliments fellas, it means allot.
Hawn, I do have a hilts small tube jig mold that I think will take a 32833 hook. I did tie some on a football jig but one this looks more shrimpy. Don't know if the leech would work for steelies, We mostly plunk and it's really rocky so I think you'd be hung up most of the time, don't know until I try.

AllenOk, That's a Leech Red color zonker with black wooly bugger chenille. Theres greenish flash in the chenille that's kinda hard to see but the camera really picked up the red on that rabbit skin. Also have some hot orange/white barred and I might try a natural or brown to look like a nightcrawler too.

I like them both, but that leech really interests me. Cool
