Randy, that sounds like a great time. My experience with leach patterns in New England matches that of Roop. This may be due to my never seeing a leach while out on the stream. What water conditions do you find the leach patterns work in?
John; I found the leach to work best in stained or muddy waters. Black & browns tend to work best. This is due to the contrast they give to the dirty water, the fish can see it.
Try black/red, all black, or black/brown patterns. I tie a white/yellow leach but that works best in clear waters.
Best of luck...
