Anyone use any good streamers on trout other than a wooly bugger. If so please try to post the recipes for me. Thanks.

Black Ghost, Micky Finn and Muddler Minnow. All found in fly tying books or on the web. However, the black ghost I tie with Marabou.

mattmask,

I started fishing Clouser minnows this year and did rather well. Try the smaller sizes (8-12) in whatever colors are present where you fish. Don't leave home without a yellow/red and charturese/white though.

I love streamer fishing and I'm always trying new ways. My favorites are:

Shenk's Minnow (tied in several color combinations)
Clouser Minnow (Several color combinations)
Thunderheads (I've been using them for about 3 years now and I'm really suprised at the success I've had with them.

Slumpbusters
Don't need anything else.
Did just start tying some Meat Whistles but I have tried them yet. Thier more of a big water streamer but the Slumps I tie down to size 12 in various colors. They catch fish everywhere any time. They are simply the best streamer I have ever fished.

Besides Buggers:

Clouser Foxee Minnow
Shenk Minnow
The various rabbit strip patterns: Zonker etc.

I'm surprised that several people mentioned the Mickey Finn. You really catch many fish on that fly? I tried it some back around 1970 and didn't have a lot of luck, so haven't used it since.

About adding weight to streamers. I haven't tried coneheads yet. Is there an advantage to using them over the lead dumbell eyes?

I like the Mikey Finn, although I will say that it's best to fish them early in the season near redds. If you catch my meaning! They also work well in the Fall. Early and late in the day is good too, although I suppose that's true of most streamers or flies in general.

I'm not a big fan of coneheads.

I bought a pack of coneheads just to try them out. I figured in addition to being black and less flashy, they might have a more tapered shape the fish would like more. I still do way better with the good old gold brass beads.

As for the slumpbuster, anyone have a recipe?

Then you have this version

TMC 200R (size 8-12) hook
Black 3/0 danville thread
pine squirrel (black, olive, natural)
superglue or zap-a-gap

place hook in vise, start thread and wind it back to the bend keeping it very tight
measer the strip the lengh of the hook, seperate the hair and tye on to the hook
bring thread back to the front of hook (leaving small space between each gap)
add a small amount of glue to the back of the hook
(NOTE: here you need to work fast.. while keep it neat!!!)
