Don't forget crayfish patterns when you are tying streamers. The big boys love em. Slumbusters are awesome flies, as are other patterns that represent sculpins.

Look up Clouser's cray fish. It is an easy tie and very effective. There is a bugger variant that is very productive too. It is called the bow river bugger. Big browns eat em up. Speaking of big. Tie and fish some big stuff, like size 2. A size 2 bugger or streamer is not too big for trout.

here is a link to a pic of a bow river bugger.

Besides Buggers, if I fish streamer it is a crayfish, or a fry version of my targeted species of trout.
My crayfish pattern and brook trout pattern have been posted here before.
This a broun trout I've recently tied. Haven't had a chance to fish it. I think it's belly it a little too golden for a fry and should be duller. Whatcha think?
The reason I started tying trout fry as streamers, is because last year around this time Chaz brought up a study that showed that wild trout streams have 40% fatality rate. Mostly due to larger trout eating smaller trout.
A friend and I found that on brookie streams, a lot of large brookies eat small brookies excusively.

Not to justify that pic, but the lighting doesn't give it justice and has a fuller darker back and the spots are more defined.

I'll post the brookie. The belly is a little more red/orange than the picture shows.
For the kish I have a small bow too. Hopefully with the baby brown and bow I can entice some of those large browns.

Funny you say the pike thing.
I upper Quebec, we have a cabin on a lake where no one lives.
The lakes are connected by small streams and beaver ponds. In the streams and ponds brookies live.
I do tie a large brookie for the pike.
I will try and find pike on fly rod pictures and post them.

i like to use mickey finns,red and whites,which are mickey finns with white in place of the yellow and generic bucktaills with white under the hook and brown over.

sometimes i use two buggers together as a crayfish pattern.

i use a few other classic streamers too like grey ghosts,black nosed dace,black ghosts ,muddlers etc.

i use clousers for bass,but i hear people catch trout on them too.

As for the slumpbuster, anyone have a recipe?


If I'm thinking right, thunderhead is tied with bucktail. You tie the bucktail on the hook with the butt ends facing the bend and the tips out past the eye so the hairs surround the the hook. Then you bend the hair back encircling the hook and tie them down a couple eye widths behind the bend in the hair. Also if I remember it is a style of tying then the name of a fly.

Whoops got my flies mixed up. A thunderhead is a dry fly pattern from the smokies that I use for brookies. The fly I meant was the Thunder Creek Special. I like to tie it with brown on top black in the middle and white on the belly with tinsel and flashabou mix in accordingly.
