Default Re: Strike Indicator Slower than Current?

A bugger is imitating something that swims. Minnow etc. So, it's not important for it to have a drag free drift like nymphs and dry flies. It needs to look alive and swimming.

There's many methods used to fish a streamer. All of them give lots of action to the fly. One of them is to cast up and across and stip it back to use as it works downstream. Giving it short jerks as you strip in.

You don't need to look for subtle takes with streams like you do with nymphs. A trout will hit a streamer pretty hard and it will be obvious when it happens.
