Default Big Streamers

I do a lot of bass fishing exclusively with the fly rod. I love trout fishing, but with gas prices travel from memphis to the Arkansas tailwaters or TN trout rivers is tough. I have been using clousers and poppers and recently tied up some stealth bombers, but I really want to test the theory that big fish want a big meal. I have seen several article and interviews with Kelly Galloup in Montana. I have tied a few of his articulating patterns like the sdungeon. I am looking for feedback. What do you think? What can I do to improve? Will these work on browns as well as largemouths?

Thanks for your input.

From what I've read, yes.

Those flies look great! I have some pretty similiar that a buddy ties for me. They will work on bass and trout. You may want to switch over from using maribou to rabbit strips. the maribou will get torn up quickly, but the rabbit will last.
Tie some in black also, they would be great this fall over on the Norfork river swinging through the tailouts.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Troutman, I have tied some in white and lack. I am adding lead eyes to help get them down. I also plan to fish on an intermediate line. I will give the rabbit strips a try. Thanks again.
