Fishing these on a type 6 full sinking line, 2ft, 40# leader has moved a lot of fish for me this fall. Fun to fish, fun to tie. They push a lot of water and the trout make some pretty intense strikes on them.

These flies only have a back trailing hook (Gammy B10S #2/0), and either the Senyo or Fish Skull articulated shank in 35mm / 40mm. The articulated shank is where I start spinning the deer hair.

Give em a try!

Cool flies, Artie!

Awesome! OOooooooo. "Moving water" is big deal, esp for big fish.
