Is it a problem, as a fly? The image below is a closeup of a flure tied with a #10 grasshopper hook. It is too light to cast with a spinning rod.

As an rapidly aging old guy I find it easiest to wade slowly downstream where ever possible, on the edges of deeper water, fishing down and across with a wiggler. Want it to swim left? Roll cast a big loop upstream and left. Mend the line. Let out slack as it drifts downstream. In mid to late summer the fish are not hanging out on the banks anymore. They're in deep mid-river runs. Downstream with a diving wiggler, with a loooooong leader, is deadly.
If it's not a fly it isn't a lure either, because you can only use it with a fly rod, at least if you do not add lots of extra weight.
