Big fish eat small fish. And, this classic-styled streamer pattern does a good job of imitating our native brook trout which are vulnerable to the larger brown trout that often share the same water.
You can fish this brook trout with a shorter sink-tip (10-12′) or even a floating line. If using the latter, proper mending in the retrieve will allow you to dance and suspend the fly in likely fish-holding water and above structure.
