When I say it's the #1 producer that statement is based on use over time of many classic patterns. My own creation 'The Answer' ruled the roost when speaking Brown Trout from 1997 - 2004 with great catches. It is also true however that during that time I used it exclusively. Since there are no brown trout here I reverted back to a more general use fly that bears resemblance to many juvenile fish here when they are in the fry stage.

You just tie them on and they will come. The effective use of streamers relies on alot more than luck. I use a strategy that combines line and fly control coupled with a careful approach to that spot that I expect to find a fish waiting for passing prey. The speed at which the minnow is traveling and the direction of that travel has (in my opinion) much to do with results also. I have used these flies and other patterns designed the same way in fishing 12 different States and several Provinces of Canada and enjoyed the fishing / catching very much.
