So what are your favorite fall streamer patterns to lure out those huge browns. Mine are the Slump Buster and the Physco Sculpin.

I like the occasional bugger, but my favorite is a realistic brown crayfish pattern. Because they are getting their last meals of the year and are a large treat to a hungery mating brown.

One of my friends keeps some of his fish to eat and every fish over 16" always has atleast 2 crayfish in its stomach.

What color do you like your Slump Buster? I've been tying up a bunch of those lately and adding some Krystal Flash to them also.

Have you tried turning the hook so the point is up? Or do you not fish the crayfish on the bottom?

I have thought about it, and tried it once or twice. I personally think it looks better and is easier to tie the traditional way (it takes me oughly 20 minutes to complete one). Eventhough I know that presentation is 50 times more important than appearence; besides I usually give it some kind of swimming action. Another thing is trout will inhale a crayfish, instead of sipping it in, IMO.
Do you think it works better with the hook up?

My favorite is the black bugger with krystal flash. Starting using a white krystal bugger this year, with good success!
