topwater flies, do they have a place in your box?

Are you guys tying your gurglers on 1/0 hooks with just bucktail? I enjoy fishing them but I haven't caught anything bigger than schoolies on them. Do they work in larger/longer sizes with hackles etc or should I stick to the standard tying?

I sometimes use estaz or chenille to wrap the body. It pushes a bit more water. Off the backend, just bucktail and some flash for me. Most of mine fall in at about 4-5" in length. Can't imagine longer wouldn't work as well.
