Purple Steelhead Matuka by Piscator Flies

The Steelhead Matuka is an adaptation of the New Zealand method of Matuka flies. The traditional Matukas use feathers for the wing, but the steelhead version uses a rabbit strip. While the pattern has been developed as a “steelhead” fly, I think it will make a great fly to use in pursuit of other trout, salmon, pike, and bass.
