Even though we're a popular site and I'm almost sure that Popovics has been looking in at some point, I'd be very (positively) surprised if he answered your question here.

But maybe I can help you. If you want to catch trout with a Fleye Foil fly you can use any of the foils. I honestly think the trout cares very little about the shape of the foil. If you want to imitate a trout the Anchovy or the Silverside will probably do the best job.
