The attractive color of the peacock quill, with its dark stripe followed by a lighter one on degrade makes it a perfect element to make a natural abdomen in endless flies, but it has a problem: its width is not for bigger flies and it is even, we can get great segments with it but not the cone shape or the segments that get thicker in the abdomen.

Where then can we find quills with correct length, width or cone shape to tie, for example, large stoneflies? The answer is simple, it comes from tyers of the XIXth century, who used quills taken from wing feathers of ducks, goose and others using a fairly simple method that produces quills of the correct length and also translucent, so we can color and dye them.

In the 70s, Ted Niemeyer, a very fine tyer used this kind of quills to create very interesting models for an angler that was interested in impressionistic flies and very attractive for trout.

To obtain the quills easily the first thing to do is to get a good lot of feathers of a duck’s wing for example, especially the primary and secondary ones in the wing. These have to be put in hot water with some spoonfuls of detergent and left at least for 24 hours so that the cuticle that covers the main quill of the feather softens.

After the 24 hours soak, lift a barb of the central raquis with a very sharp blade (as seen in the picture). We can get a strip at each side of the feather, but the best one can be obtained from the convex side of the raquis or the top side of the feather. Once we lift the barb, take it with forceps and pull evenly away and down. It will loosen from the upper layer of the raquis, completely, and we’ll have a conical tape, pretty translucent, with clear color stripes.

Once we have several of thes quills, we can improve its transparency by scraping softly the inner side until the pith, the white spongy substance, on the darker side is loosened.
These quills, in comparison with the peacock ones, are much more resistant, conical and long, allowing us to tie on larger hooks. Today’s nymph is on a size 4 long-shank hook.

Once we are familiar with the system to obtain this type of quills we can do the same for almost every feather, we just have to experiment but it is worth the try, for we will get a natural quill that can’t be imitated by any synthetic quill.

The first ones were tied with heron feathers, but when those were difficult to obtain, anglers started using hen, rooster and other kinds of feathers. It’s not easy to improve an traditional Matuka, in fact each variant works best in certain situations. So I carry collar-less Matukas, other with collar, long ones, short ones, hen and rooster, as well as the new M.M.Double Tukas.A while ago I decided to tie Matukas on plastic or metal tubes, after trying the Peacock fly in Tierra del Fuego, which is like a Matuka made with peacock swords and a golden body. This new Matuka comes from experimenting to achieve a better belly silhouette. I saw René Harrop’s Matukas with marabou bellies so I tried rooster and hen feathers tied as you can see here. It worked very well and it allows us to improve the silhouette without losing the transparency, which suggests a body and fins of the minnow, especially if we use different colors of feathers.The first Double Matukas were tied on Partridge’s Bartlett salmon hooks, I still use them but the tubes are much more versatile. The broad holographic tinsel body adds the necessary flash of the scales, which sometimes determines the strike, as well as the color combination on the wing and belly. Today’s chartreuse one is an attractor to use in cold or discolored waters. I use more natural colors to imitate rainbow, perch and other minnows in normal temperature and clarity of waters.

My first contact with it was in the Kau tapen Lodge in Tierra del Fuego. They had begun their operation not long ago and the head guide was Roland Holmberg, a well known Swedish angler who guided for Atlantic Salmon in the famed Gaula River in Norway. Roland used a two-handed rod and tube flies, a real novelty for us who used single-handed rods in those times.

More than 35 years ago, watching an angler fish a Sunray Shadow at great speed, with a floating line and a spey rod was quite a show. Only European anglers used two-handed rods regularly in those days, we had none in Argentina and in the US they were not very popular, although anglers like Mike Maxwell were already known as Spey Casting names.

Roland gave me some Sunray Shadows, very simple ones: a deer and goat wing tied on a transparent tube, with many tooth marks by several sea trout. I rapidly tied some copies and kept the originals, and since those days I have used tube flies, together with my normal streamers, always with great results.

There are models of streamers that are very difficult to turn into tubes, and today articulated streamers are fighting hard, but a good tube is still unreplaceable to fish on the swing, for example; with the advantage that we can use a great variety of hooks to adapt the tube to different waters and fish sizes.

The original Sunray Shadow was designed and tied for the first time in the 60s by a pro tier called Mr. Raymond Brooks, who rented the Laerdal River in Norway between the 60s and 90s. it was tied with black hair from a Colobo monkey (Colobus sp) taken from a rug a friend had given him. Commercially, Ray Brooks must have gotten that hair from a fur salesman of those times. Today, monkey hair is forbidden and it is replaced by sheep, goat or Collie dog hair.

We can see these original Shadows in a picture attached here, it’s a tube model clearly derived from the Sunray Shadow Roland gave me. I have added details over the years to fish for browns from other rivers, different to the Río Grande in Tierra del Fuego.

In the Grande, brown trout come from the sea, where they eat other sea fish like anchovies and other similar ones. These long, thin, translucent fish are well imitated with an original Sunray Shadow. It still does a killing in the Grande, but I needed a bulkier one for the inland browns that eat their congeners. Taking the idea from tubes from the Dee River in Scotland, like the Dee Monkey, I added materials and colors that were very effective in traditional streamers.

The grizzly Matukas dyed in yellow have never failed. This Puelche takes the colors of the wing and body, although the black floss with its silk glow cant hide its resemblance to other of my favorite streamers, the Black Ghost. The underwing of the Puelche is a mix of yellow and red bucktail. Many will remember the colors of the Mickey Finn. The yellow and black wings of the Puelche are made of materials like sheep or goat hair, that moves very well in the water. Then come some details like glow, peacock that always must be present in streamers (because this tube is still a streamer), jungle cock in the cheeks for better contrast, yellow and black hackle in this case, that has the important function of creating a turmoil on the back making the wing to move in an undulating way.


The Puelche is perfect to swing with floating lines or slow sinking ones, casting across the current to then make a long mend upstream or downstream, according to our need of slowing down or accelerating the fly to have a more attractive speed.
It is very effective as well when we fish it in the deep with fast sinking lines, but we must make it cross the current in an appealing speed for the fish.

This fly needs certain velocity so the front hackle makes turbulence and the wing moves undulating like a swimming fish.


With short mends and simultaneous moves with the tip of the rod we’ll make the swimming erratic and with some stops, imitating a small fish in trouble.

Many times, big trout follow these flies for a while and suddenly attack them in a spectacular way, sometimes it happens at the end of the swing so we need to stay calm and patient.

Roland, when the water temperature was good, fished the Sunray Shadow casting across the current to then bring it in long fast strips with his line hand. Sometimes he even made it jump on the surface because of the high speed but the browns were faster and caught it easily. The attack on a fly that goes fast is not delicate and it leaves no doubts at all.
