supposed to look like something from Kelly Galloup.......needs work but maybe the fish will eat-em.Ok need some help here .....dont want any deep tongue or gill hooked fish so I remove the rear hook........is that about what everyone does to prevent this?Know this sounds dumb but I want them to swim away not float away.

Smoke......I'd leave the extra hook in place, and see what happens. Those Galloup patterns are generally fished pretty fast and the flies are attacked rather than sipped or inhaled. That hard bite usually keeps the trailer hook from being swallowed. Also, tail nippers are now going to be a bit surprised as they too come to your net.

Nice fly, sir.

guess my main concern after the safety of the fish is the legal use of the second hook.

I believe they are legal in all waters except the special regs streams that are "single hook artificial fly only." Or.....you could clip the trailer hook for trout waters and leave it intact for smallie fishin'.

Or you could just give them to me and I'll decide. No need to thank me, really. Just trying to be helpful.

I agree with Jule....I've caught a few fish using flies like this and the rear hook never presented a problem to the fish....If I did anything....I'd cut the front hook at the bend and leave the rear hook. I can tell ya those woulda caught fish in the trophy section at "left behinds" :D
