Streamers are lures tied with feathered wings, usually cock neck or saddle hackles or even a feather and hair combination. Trout streamer flies are very popular patterns for Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout in stillwaters and rivers
How Do You Fish Streamer Patterns For Trout?
Normally just one or 2 streamer fly patterns will put onto droppered leaders with a long leader of 12 to 20 feet. These will be stripped or retrieved with a figure of 8 retrieve. Try stopping the streamers to make them look like fish that have darted across the water and then stopped acting like natural small fish, this teqhnique of starting and stopping is naural rather than a continuous stripping technique and frequently will be deadly wen trout are really hitting lures.
