    For bigger fish (i.e. - Chum, etc.) they also have an SC 15 - 2H now.

    While originally designed for use in fresh water, Mike Kinney's Reverse Spider is not only highly effective there but in salt water as well

    From what I read the SC15-2H smallest hook offered is 3/0, too much hook for my needs.

    Yeah, I found that out when I tried to order some. I saw the 2H, but didn't focus on the sizes.

    Jack Gartside used #2546 and is a great hook, no doubt about it. It is very strong but may be overkill for SRC. If a striper can't break them, they are strong.

    Following these guys on instagram. Last post showed a fly caught 17" SRC that was puking up pile worms when brought to hand. He had grown 3" in the last 9 month's was caught @ the same beach.

    So I'd recommend a pile worm pattern.

    In my experience, yes. I'm also waiting for Preston's reply. I fish these using either a floating line, or a clear sinktip. Where there's some current, you can let them hang for a bit, and twitch them so that the hackle flutters and pulsates.
    I'm going to tie some Squimps and Chum fry immitations.
    I should also tie some marine worm patterns

    Yes, essentially the same retrieve. In the salt I'm usually using an itermediate-sink
    (full, or head) line and I fall into the "Kinney retrieve" without thinking about it (force of habit). Just to obfuscate things a bit, I have an acquaintance who fishes a black Knudson Spider about 90% of the time and who catches as many, if not more, than most.

    Here's a Stonefish pile worm pattern I've been itching to feed to an oversized SRC. It moves beautifully when wet, here it's suspended wet in one of my wife's flower vases. She's completely thrilled with my process.

    Replaced his small #4 red owner, with a slightly larger barbless Gamakatsu in nickel. This thing is going to slay.

    Glad to see a lot of you cutthroat fanatics still like my Delia's Cone-Head Squid. I still use it when all else fails but have been having some good luck this year with my new "big fish fly" pattern, my tiny sand shrimp pattern, a glow-in-the-dark bead-head squid, and my version of Chester Allen's Sand Worm fly. I post fishing storie, often with photos of the flies I'm fishing on my Facebook page. For those interested in friending me please send me a note at deliajeffrey@yahoo.com and I will friend you.

    I have tied my squid pattern in just about every salt water color i can think of but ultimately have had the best success with the original...cream or tan marabou tail, pearl new age chenille for body with a white or pearl petite estaz for a collar and a gold cone-head. Jeffrey Delia
