Default How to fish Streamers???

I can't be the only one....I do best with dry flies, okay with nymphs, and I haven't really gotton into wet flies. I have tried streamers but they only work if I troll them and that isn't really fly fishing to me. I am told you have to strip the line to make them look like a minnow but I am confused. How far of an actual presentation can you get with a streamer? A couple of feet- just in front of the trout? Cast across and then strip? I've been told to use a weightless streamer and a "Polly" leader because the polly leader will sink. In any event using a streamer is an aspect of fly fishing I'd like to improve upon.
