Here's a local pattern that I "pimped out". Awesome topwater action on these for salmon and Sea Run Cutts.

Front hook gets clipped.

Body: White polar bear, grizzly hackle, flashabou, crystal flash, olive icelandic sheep topped with peacock.

Ya need more gap between the head and the point
Using a long shank hook would be best as the slider will sit better in the water.
If you want to stay with the standard shank, cut the head flat on the bottom.

The front hook gets clipped off. If you look towards the back, you'll notice a trailing circle hook.

Sorry, should have read the recipe better.
Never seen something like that. Normally fish that will hit a top water bug do not short-strike, making a trailer hook unnecessary.
