I also work it at times. This thing dives pretty well and has a decent bubble trail. Others will certainly chime in here.
And welcome to GRF.

In flat water or slow pockets, I let it sit at first, work it slow. In faster water is where I give them the most action, but not always. I often strip and mend at the same to time to slow my bug down in faster runs. It's very easy to do, instead of mending by moving the rod tip horizontally, mend by popping the rod tip up. The strip will move the SB and make it dive and the mend will allow it float back to the top. But, you have to keep up with the slack or you'll miss some fish.

Bingo, are those your blockhead poppers in your post on the first page? Could you post more pics, I'm thinking about tackling something like that for my first attempt at making my own flies.

I've got several patterns and some ideas for a GRF pattern index. Shoot me a pm if you're interested.
