Default Re: How to fish Streamers???

Welcome pab1,

Your answer is about as right as it gets and I too have had fish grab the fly while I was doing nothing at all.

This is why I often stop and light a cigarette as my fly just sits or drifts. I have in the past got hit right at that moment.

I do the same. That's why I can't quit smoking.

Been fishing stillwater lately, with nymphs and scuds and chironomids, but when I fish the river I use a lot of streamers or buggers. I typically cast them accross the current, let them dead drift then swing accross at the end of the drift. On the retrieve, I try to strip them right next to the foam line in the slow side of the current in short 3 to 4 inch strips. This seems to work.

Oh yeah, don't forget to let them hang at the end of the drift for 5 or 10 seconds this makes them rise up and the fish will often hit them really hard at this point.
