I can't speak for ScottP but I do skate them for steelhead and I believe the pattern was designed with that in mind. Surely you could dead drift them like any other dry fly though.

Love this pattern Scott. I fish the large purple ones for summer steelhead. I usually just buy em. Looks like I'll be tying my own thanks to you

This will be a killer for Bristol Bay rainbows in tan or brown. I'll tie some up. I tied a bunch of the pena zhuk in different colors and it is not my favorite dry for BB and Argentina rainbows.
