Killer pattern. The classic Strung Out MOAL (Mother of all Leeches) is even sexier as a Roid. 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.
Note; As of Feb 2012 we now have a very good new stainless shank option for many extended Strung Out Patterns.
