Default Re: Number 1 Trout Producing Streamer (for me);

Kevin,

I believe that a large part of the effectiveness of this type of fly is that in many watersheds you are showing the fish something different. Sometimes different can be a good thing. Once you have tied some and you take them to the water, pay close attention to how the fly acts and how much it will resemble a small fish. I find that they are best in moving water, if you use them in Loch's you'll need to figure out the best retrieval style for them. In moving water I fish them to the suspected holding spots and then accelerate the fly a bit so as to not give the fish a good long look at the fly. The reasoning behind this is to trigger the urge to pursue the fly but not allow time to discern that it is a fake.
