Hound -
Don't actually fish the Hooch much, but for most trout fishing I do in north GA I use wooly worm, as opposed to bugger (short yarn tail instead of maribou). `Don't know exactly why I got started on w-worm, but it is my "go-to" for trout. I like black or brown with grizzly hackle and red tail.

Recently, I've begun fishing small ponds (Callaway Gradens) for bass and bream and have much success there with wooly-buggers (esp greens/olive/olive sparkle chenille). Maybe if I'd started using these years ago, tehy'd have worked for trout even better than the worm. But the worm works plenty good (also great for shoal/redeye bass and bream).

Re retreive, with wooly worm I usually fish dead drift in moving water. In ponds, of course, strip is needed, but generally very slow.
