Try Pistol Pete's with a casting bubble. Fill the bubble with water, and even stick some small split shot in the bubble to keep it sunk during the retrieve. make sure the casting bubble goes on the line first. Then a swivel. That's important, because when you get a strike the line will pull through the bubble, and the fish won't feel the resistance of the bubble weight.

Then tie on 5ft of flouro to the swivel, and then the Pistol Pete. Cast it out, and wait different length of times to fish different water columns on the retrieve. Reel back very slowly with a little action applied. Little jerks, and also let it stop and sink for 1-2 seconds, and jerk it back while starting to reel again.

If you get no strikes add a salmon egg to the Pistol Pete. The PP will get a lot more strikes than a plain Woolly Bugger. It's been tested. Try the all black, and all olive PP's.

This method was always good for 50-100 trout a day for Guy Montera and myself. Boring as hell compared to dry flies on moving water.
