Default Re: Streamer question

Yep hook up can be good and yes tie a couple and test them to make sure they ride that way. I tie half mine with the hook up and half with the hook down, reason being you can vary the way the material lays on the hook depending on which way you want it to ride and can get a variant with the same pattern depending on that. I use hook up in the lowland lakes here in Washington when i want to avoid snags in weedy areas like Frank said. Just make sure they ride as you want them to, so experiment........what a concept fly fishers experimenting ....................it's all about the enjoyment of discovery and searching and the satisfaction of this amazing sport and art form.................Happy Fishing
