    Are streamers your preferred approach, or was it more a factor of the time of year (fall) that you mentioned them?

    Reason I ask is because the Provo is a highly-pressured tailwater fishery... and outside of the fall pre-spawn zone, I'm not sure the trout are willing chasers. They get conditioned to a year-round smorgasbord of midges, scuds, and sow-bugs drifting by (in addition to the seasonals) and even the big fish would rather sit and inhale "sliders" all day as opposed to chasing the occasional "Big Mac" that presents itself.

    My first approach on provo would be dry flies and drifting midges, emergers. Just wanting to learn all the possible aspects of fly fishing in general.

    Why would a "fly-fishing rig" be needed to fish with streamers ?

    Rockriv: Something else to think about is to learn to use wets. Do some research on how to fish wets, it can be an extremely enjoyable way to spend some time on the water and Joe (stenacron) has been very successful with their use on the Provo, if I recall correctly.

    Yeah, not a lot of people fishing soft hackles that I have come across, especially during hatches. Sometimes that's all it takes for pressured fish... little different look than they're used to.

    The Olives had been out of this world lately. Honestly, they've been the best Baetis hatches I have ever seen or fished.

    my father actually just took a class at the western rivers fly shop in salt lake last week and they talked a lot about fishing wets (soft hackles). he took some notes and im pretty sure hes on the provo today working on the technique.
