The Matuka Cosseboom is a great atlantic salmon fly here on the Quebec North Shore region, especialy when the water condition are from medium to high. This fly can be fished in the traditionnal 45 degree drift or stripped not to fast thus creating good action a moving fish quite often. This variation of the cosseboom can be tied in various well known atlantic salmon flies simply tied in the matuka fashion.



Hook - SALMON single or double size depends on water levels
Thread - red
Wing- light dun hackle feather tied on hook matuka style
Body - light olive floss
hackle- grizzly hackle
Tail- olive floss short
Tag- silver mylar
Rib- silver oval tinsel

Here is another example of a Matuka style atlantic salmon fly



Hope you enjoy the pattern
