About the Hairy Black Matuka Trout Fly
"The Hairys". The basic secret of the Hairy Black Matuka, as with all Hairy flies and bug patterns is the pulsing action of the hair hackle. Hair is substituted for feathers found in the traditional patterns. This pattern as with all my Hairys have a natural action in the water and it is imperative that fishermen remember that artificial flies at the end of their leader act like living organisms.
Normal fishing methods should be used when fishing the "Hairys" - Gordon (2002)
The main benefit of the Perfection loop knot is that the loop formed lies directly in line with the main line.
