    Yeah the lighting does make it look a little purple now that I look at it again. Its Black/White.

    I'll tie a Butt Monkey. I haven't figured out the articulated version yet, so it will most likely be a single hook.

    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.
