About the Hairy Olive Matuka Trout Fly
"The Hairys". The basic secret of the Hairy Olive 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 fliesat the end of their leader act like living organisms.
Normal fishing methods should be used when fishing the "Hairys" - Gordon (2002)
The Double Grinner is an excellent knot for joining two lengths of nylon because the two halves of the knot are tightened independently.
