Hope for Winter's Hope?

Was reading up on Bill McMillan and his Winter's Hope last night in Trey Combs' Steelhead Fly Fishing. I know it's about as canonical as a fly can get, but I've never fished or tied it. Anyway, it's obviously among the simpler flies, which makes it attractive for my winter steelheading since I tend to lose a lot on the bottom. Anyone use/tie this fly regularly? What's your experience?
