Mega Moal Leech for Winter Steelhead (Go Big!)
Tied just like the Moal Leech, but bigger (5 - 6 inches). These big mega moal leeches will move winter steelhead. Fish these flies on the swing, and winter steelhead will move for them.
Big Black Mega Moal has been my favorite this winter.
Because of their size and bulk and usually used with heavy sink tips. These flies are more difficult to cast, but a Perry Poke Spey Cast will get the job done.
Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well.
