    Classic Kiwi Matukas in Ireland

    The matuka flies are an integral part of the fly fishing culture I grew up with on the shores of Lake Taupo. My first wild rainbow fell to a taupo-tiger on the mouth of the Waitahanui River known globally as the 'picket fence'. I was twelve years old fumbling in my dad's sun-parched, rubber...
