Everyone I fish with thinks I'm crazy for fishing streamers so much. They catch a lot of fish on nymph rigs, but I catch a lot bigger fish when I throw meat. My addiction has gotten so bad I am in the process of buying a switch rod specifically for streamer fishing for trout.

By request, some articulated streamers! These are Kelly Galoup's Sex Dungeon, and the olive with the light olive tail (which has taken quite a beating) seems particularly successful. White is also successful but I need to tie more!
Here's a brown caught on the olive one:
And here's a saltwater box I started tying for my father for Christmas, any suggestions will be considered and likely tied in triplicate:
Every fly posted here will catch fish no matter where I used them, from the Spring surf to the late Autumn trout fishing rivers. Beautiful work, and I gotta say the 'Squirrel Bugger' has many fish in its future. Great posts and I can't wait to see what's next!
