Next thing ya know ya'll be sayin your fishing buddy was Matthew or Doc...or Miss Kitty.

Kelly Galloup has a very good book/DVD regarding fishing for trout with streamers. unfortunately the exact name escapes me right now but i know "trout" and "streamers" are in the title.

Hey Albatross,
Here is a simple tie that is my go to fly all winter, but works all year. Dead drift it deep and slow, sometimes they hit on the swing.
3X #10 streamer hook
Copper beadhead
Black marabou tail
Body; Peacock color Kreinik Micro Ice Chenille
Black hackle palmered over body

Black hen hackle may be even better being softer and having more movement in the water.


Good luck,
Flyman

Hey Albatross,
Everytime I type that I think of an old Monty Python skit, anyway I tried to send you a PM let me know you got it.
Later!

The book is great... I've seen both of his DVD's. The one about tying his streamer patterns, and the one about him fishing the patterns. I recommend both. He has a 3rd DVD out in which he ties his articulated streamers. I can't bring myself to spend 30 bucks on it though. I'll wait for NETFLIX to pick it up...

You can also hear the PODCAST through Fly Fish Internet Radio here: http://www.askaboutflyfishing.com/speakers/kelly/kelly.cfm

I happened upon the podcast when i first got my IPOD... been hooked on his streamers and tactics since.

I have grown to love streamers as much as dry flies! All it will take is fishing them that one right day and you'll be hooked. Bugger, or a matuka, in slightly cloudy water somedays the trout will be fighting for your fly.

I've been working on my bugger/streamer technique this spring. I've had success now on 3 different outings. One of the things I like best about them is there is no wrong way to fish them. Dead drift, drag across current, stripped upstream or down, you never know what might tickle the fancy of a plump trout.

I hooked a brown Sunday with my back turned to the fish while I was concentrating on makig my way back to the bank. I hadn't lifted the streamer out of the water, and bam -- he hooked himself. I'm beginning to see the light.

Albie,

On my first trip to the Yellow Breeches about 15 years ago, I caught my only fish on a back cast on an olive bugger. I stopped on the back cast, it hit the water and when I went to cast forward I though I had a branch or something. Crazy!

That's how I caught my first trout on a fly!
