Streamer fishing is a forgotten art, even though people like Joe Brooks and Kelley Gallop have perfected the technique of fishing streamers for big fish. Learning these secrets will produce more fish and generate a greater understanding of fly-fishing.
Many anglers know how to high stick a nymph or drift a Royal Wulff in pocket water, but fishing with streamers is much more. Streamer fishing is a collective technique incorporating all others; the technique uses dead drift, swing and stripping tactics that are intermingled to anger big fish into striking. It’s a true art that once mastered – provides another effective tool for any intermediate angler.
