Joe- I saw Ray's hook idea at the Newport tying fair this spring and I've been looking for double hooks like they use for salmon but not having much luck finding any that would last in the salt.
The salmon style would catch more fish 'cause of the point to popint spread of the hook being less than with Ray's design. After last nite one point was all I needed the fish were weaving the hook in and out so many times that several I hade to cut the fly off and remove it backwards- they must've been hungry.
I also checked the website to see if it mentioned tying in the hackles (which the article didn't) and that part of the pattern is missing there also , and I can't remember if he yied the hackles on both sides of the hook or not. Ron
