Yes, when trout are on bait, these work great. Size can be a factor with the jig hook. I think the smallest I have seen is size 4 so if the bait is small, this size two hook might be too big. Also, as you may know, super flukes, which the original SST was designed to imitate, have been used for trout, particularly big browns, for quite some time. I've also caught some nice cohos and pinks on this fly. Extreme rear weighting causes the fly to flutter backwards on the pause a little like a buzz bomb, which is a deadly saltwater salmon lure. And finally, you don't have to use a jig hook for this fly. The jig hook allows you to use less weight and it might impart some better action depending on the fly design. Any lighter wire "j" hook will work fine too.

I will get some video together to show the action of this fly sometime in the new year. I know that Dan wants to do that too. The pics and tying instructions just don't tell the story.
