I know you don't like my posts and I am OK with that. However from one fisherman to another here goes anyway.
I have done a lot of Rooster fishing in my life time and at times under the right conditions the Roosters will eat almost anything, however for the best high percentages flies I think the Tan Air Head or an Air Head look-a-like fly is the best. Sardine flies like my Tan Sardine, or my Tan articulated Crease flies are the flies I would use if I was making that trip, Try and avoid flies that suck up a lot of water, they turn in to just a wet sock or a birds nest after a few casts. I would also recommend the Out bound RIO short tropical floater or the same line in Intermediate. Lots of times you will get several cast at the same fish and the floater will allow you to repeat your casts with less effort, short leader maybe 6 foot long for easy casting, Roosters have a very soft mouth and are very easy to bury the hook in their mouth.......Hope some of this helps.
PS- they don't make the TAN air head anymore however if you get on the phone and use their 800 numbers you can find them at different fly shops. The bottom picture are some home made air heads with good hooks
