String/ hareball/ MOAL leech leech leech

Okay, I've seen pictures of the string leech, hareball and MOAL leeches. They all look basically the same! Has anyone fished them all? Are there any big differences in how they move in the water?

I fished the MOAL pattern from Northwest Fly Fishing magazine last December on the Methow and landed two nice steelhead. The fly has great movement and the rear stinger hook results in solid hookups. Black and Purple and Red and Orange will be in my Steelhead box from now on. Steve
Could you post the tying instructions for this fly. They do work great as I have landed a steelhead and several large dollies on them in black and purple.
