Half 'n' Half

Now that the wintry weather is on the horizon, the dead drift is going to be more prevalent than the swing, unless we get nice sunny days.

Figured the best approach might be half 'n' half; an upstream and across cast with dead drift using an indicator then when the bottom of the dead drift is reached, then swing it out.

What flies would you use for this? I have a wounded/dead minnow pattern that I plan on using but I'm looking for other suggestions. This pattern has only had success on hickory shad when used with a straight retrieve so it's an unknown for this application.

Here's what it looks like. It uses lead foil bent around the curve of an Alex Jackson style spey hook. It wobbles and tumbles as it goes.
