'Strung Out' Technique
'Strung Out' Technique

“The MOAL was originally designed by northwest steelhead guide Derek Fergus, the Strung Out Leech and the Mother Of All Leeches – MOAL have become a popular new direction in fly fishing circles. The benefit of the S.O. or Strung Out design is the short hook which does not come out as easily during strong battles with heavy steelhead. The Strung Out Series can be adapted to other patterns as well. Northwest Featured fly tyer John P. Newbury has taken the MOAL to a second generation in design.”        http://flyfishnw.com/content/view/97/60/
