Default Fishing for Larger Trout

What kind of flies do you use if you are trying to only catch particularly large trout? I've read that they can eat baby birds that have fallen from their nest and even swimming mice - what would work to catch those mosters?

Usually, the philosophy when it comes to catching larger fish is to use larger bait. I know that in some areas of the world, trout can become quite huge so you'd need to know where to fish and use a large fly.

Larger trouts need bigger live baits, and they lurk in deeper waters, so you need to sink your bigger live bait deep into the waters to catch one.

So large, live bait with weight - which brings me to having to figure out how heavy the weight should be. I don't think the weight should be dragging on the bottom of the pond, right?
