Dont just wade out and start casting, you could be wading right thru the best water.
Please elaborate on the streamers and fishing down stream. Do you wade as well as cast in a fan down stream or just wading down stream? What are your tactics here with streamers? Thanks.

Lost of great info everybody. Thanks.
