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.
The tried and True Mother of all Leeches. The classic Strung Out MOAL (Mother of all Leeches) is the one thst started it all. Invented by Derek Fergus is is one heck of a pattern. These really are a pattern you need if you hunt Steelhead. Because we use a Octopus hook the short shank holds fish far better allowing more fish to hand. Because it is tied on a string (gel spun) the fly tends to wiggle and swim in the current. Specially swinging them.
Size 2 trailing hook - 3" long (custom flies tied with bead heads)

The Moal Leech catches Steelhead in all conditions. Add it to your fly box. You will never look back.
"I wanted to thank you for your fast service and a great product. I have
been fly fishing for over forty years and have caught hundreds of trout and
salmon and even a few bonefish but I had never caught a steelhead on a fly
before last weekend. With my fifth cast of your black and purple MOAL into
a nice Clackamas riffle I hooked and landed a small hatchery summer hen. I
attached a picture although it doesn't show the fly too well (my hands were
still shaking)." - Paul Boucher
