So I always wondered how fishing leeches would work for the trout. Since quite often when I catch them they often have leeches in their stomach or a few in their mouth. Well I had some left over leeches I had picked along the shore and decided to take them out to the pond. It actually was working really well... but I was getting lots of missed strikes and missed a few hook ups off camera. Well this is what happened. So if you have some leeches laying around and heading to the trout pond give them a try. There were a bunch of people fishing and I didn't see any others caught while there. Lots of surface action. Actually as I walked out a guy on the belly boat was getting some action on the fly. But regardless this leech was getting lots of attention. I probably should have put in to a deeper depth to get into the larger fish. Shoulda coulda woulda... just not enough time and I was getting action just not solid bites. I think they were pulling the leech and missing the hook.
