Add leeks and cook stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour. Stir in reserved milk, potatoes and pepper. Increase heat to medium. Cover and cook 15 minutes. Add cod and remove from heat. This soup may be made up to a day in advance to this point. Cool, cover and refrigerate. Place sour cream in small bowl. Reheat soup over medium heat until piping hot. Thin sour cream with 1/2 C. hot soup, then pour mixture into soup pot. Do not heat soup again or sour cream will curdle. Pour soup into tureen, sprinkle with fresh dill and serve.
