Salmon/sea trout snake flies

Having recently experimented with trout snake flies  I had an idea for some salmon and sea trout ones.  These are not the traditional snakes tied with a long mylar body over braid and a hair wing.  Mine are tied with rabbit zonker strips.  A treble right in the tail and a salar double up front.  I have seen a few salmon flies tied with zonker strips out back as a sort of long flowing tail.  I could just see sea trout nipping at the tails of these with little or no hook ups.  Take a look at these!!

The treble right in the tail will sort out any short takers.

The hooks are connected by a uv straggle twisted into a rope which forms the body.

This facilitates lots of movement in the water.  Blue and silver is a great combination for sea trout.  The flies are finished off with some arctic fox and a little bling.  They have a super profile!!
