Actually, a good question; don't know.

I only chase fish in the river, but the pattern done 'smaller' on a single hook would be interesting to try. The one pattern (got my box today) that realllly struck my fancy is the brown wire wrapped ' wolly bugger.' (Probably totally! incorrect calling it that). Couple of fellows use a similar pattern with great! effectiveness for fall steelhead and on some large lakes here in the area.

For the lake trout they'll rig up a 5wt rod with a clear slow sink rate fly line. About 10-12 foot of leader and will 'drift' this very slowly (light wind provides all the 'propultion' needed). This fills up the stringer in a quick hurry!
