Fished them for brookies, size 14, peacock was most popular color for those.
Last year a lot of guys i sold some too fished them for steelhead, yellow and pink were popular colors, size 8 or 10. I think in the bigger sizes they look a lot like a bug on an egg
For brookies i just deaddrifted them on a nymph rig.
For steelhead, i'm sure those guys did the same.
For yours, i'd make the body more bulky on the front half, which is easier if you use a shorter shank hook.
I use 2457 or 2488 hooks. Really dub some ice dub in there and build it up, dont be afraid to start at the front, wind back with the dubbing and then wind forward again to get the bulk. and make sure you get the goose biots on the front hook pointing outwards, just flip them over
Here's few of mine.
Size 8 on the left, size 14 on the right
