The answer to the question about fishing long flies with one hook is simply YES! I was just in Colorado and had the most success I have ever had on a streamer using a mini-sculpin with a single trailing hook. I actually can't find them anywhere so I called the local fly shop in Steamboat Springs (believe it is called Steamboat Flyfisher) and had them send me some. It basically has a long olive tail with some meshing under it that holds the hook in the back. Nothing on the body at all. Since a lot of trout short strike this works extremely well and hooks them all very nicely with little trouble in the release. Probably not too hard to tie them either...I have heard them called "stinger rigs" for saltwater although I think they also have a hook on the body that way. I suppose just cutting the front one would work too.
