I saw the sigler jr. pattern you are talking about in "innovative saltwater flies" Apparently he has trouble with it sinking to the side too. That would explain the 1/0 spinnerbait gaff he ties them on:hehe: Talk about fish killers!
Who knows though, that sinking to the side action might be the ticket for opportunisitic feeders.
If we ever meet out there we'll have to swap some flies!
