Fly Fishing: Streamer Presentations

Streamer Presentation Techniques

The reality on many streams and lakes is that ‘baitfish’ imitations account for many large fish. Probably, in many instances, streamers account for more trophy fish than the traditional fly  patterns. That said, many anglers don’t have a streamer pattern in their boxes or forget where they are. So, a good over view of how to fish a streamer, particularly on a river is in order. There is more to it than the wet fly swing/strip it back presentation. I have an assortment of Muddler’s, Spruce Flies and, of course, Woolly Buggers in my streamer box. Do I fish them enough…nope.

    I fish streamers almost everytime I’m out Gary. I enjoyed reading this but I totally disagree with the line about dead drifting a streamer being unproductive. I think it depends on the type of water a bit but out here I typically dead-drift my streamer first and retrieve second. I’ve taken many fish dead drifting a streamer, just giving some other perspective on chucking streamers.

    Thanks for that… I’ve landed the most and biggest fish this year using streamers. Those few pieces of info just opened up a lot more options for me to use them. Over the weekend I found that a stimulator could work double duty, Dry/Streamer. Drifted high through riffles would take rainbows while at the end of the drift stripping it back would to take cutts. Awesome… Landed three 16″+ cutthroats this way.
