Light-Biters Beware

And how we rue our haste, finding the gilded morsel to contain a hook. Maybe even two hooks - one of which you wouldn't expect to find hanging back there amongst those marabou fibers.

Thanks. Made for short-biting trout. The nature of streamer fishing is such that the hookup rate is relatively low (in my experience anyway). Swinging down and across, maybe the fish swim upstream when they see it and bite at the back end of the streamer... or occasionally the coincidence of a strike by the fish and a strip by the angler occurs...
This is a potential improvement for those situations.

I've been wondering about the ethics of it - seems like it's creeping a half step closer to a Rapala.

I'll give it a try and report back.

seems like your mind still reasons the same though your method has changed from a decade ago...reminds me of some of your homemade pike spoons

do you want to give up how you secure the mono to the other hook? and can this work with smaller hooks 12-14? is it just thread and superglue? I can experiment on my own if you don't want to reveal your tricks.

The stinger hook is tied on to the shank up by the eye, and then lashed down with thread. The thread is covered in Gorilla Glue. It will likely hold, but even if it doesn't - the worst case would be that it would slip down to the bend... assuming the knot holds.
