In addition to those mentioned, Sawyer for the Pheasant Tail Nymph. And Kauffman for the stimulator. Gartside I agree.

If she's hot, how do I sign up for that?

In Topic: triggers, or match the hatch?

Both.  But often an imitation of a natural can be enhanced by addition of a red tag, chartreuse or other color added to the natural, flash, or other trigger.

Ive heard that around 80% of a trouts diet is eaten below the surface. Not sure how true that is because I never saw any interviews. But I can say I have caught more, and bigger trout especially brook trout it seems on a dropper or fishing a nymph, emerger, or small streamer by itself.
