Just got Streamer Fishing for Trophy Trout from Netflix and Wow!
The quick break down: sinking line, 36″ of tippet, BIG flies (#2, 4, 6), jerk the rod while you do a quick retrieve, cast into slack water.
I figured I must be doing something wrong as I rarely get strikes from streamers but this guy’s video was a crazy eye opener. You just have to make it through the bad video editing at the start and then it’s an hour and a half of great information. While I will probably never go 100% looking for only trophy trout like he does in his video, I think a lot of his information translates great into fishing for what he calls the small guys (yeah real small at 18-24″). He gives great insight into the behavior and holding positions of large trout—in fact, holding positions of large trout was 75% of the video. He really gets you to think about how streamer fishing is different from dry fly or nymphing. You can get the video at Netflix or if you want to buy it at Amazon. Now I will have to get his video Streamer Flies for Trophy Trout so I can tie his flies and give it whirl.
