    J, as of yet undetermined. Let's say BIG, and articulated. Tell me, hook front, rear, both and let the user clip them. I may do a shank up front (extra mass, extra splash) and an articualted rear hook.

    I do not want to catch a brown trout. I want to catch a REALLY BIG BROWN TROUT. Colors I have materials in are brown/tan/ginger with a few different options. I like the big bushy head on this one with the rubber streaming off the sides.

    If that's the goal I'd tie a 2" long olive streamer on one hook and put a thingamabobber 4' above it. :thumb:

    I like the idea of 2 hooks instead of a shank personally, it's surprising how many of them get caught on the front hook.

    I can do two hooks. I happen to have some pretty long shanked hooks for the front. Might be a bit of leverage for the fly taster. Here we have to clip one off. I've always wondered about "short strikes". Seems that most predatory fish wanting to eat other fish are not going to be tail nipping. They are going to be head chomping.

    i have been putting together several different streamers and the one i'm liking the best is a double bunny so it looks like that's what you will get.

    Looks great Mike.

    I'm still brewing up a couple ideas, leaning towards a rattlesnake pattern. It's a mainstay on the SF.

    Nice Tie Mike, I rarely fish DB's any more, but will have the faith after watching you rip fish on all sorts of things on the big hole.
