Lafkas On Streamer Selection

lafkas-1-2

Great read from our mate Alex Lafkas on the Flymen Fishing Co. blog about selecting, and tying, streamers according to the flows you are dealing with.

Unweighted flies have more side-to-side action and hover on the pause. When weight is added, the fly falls on the pause, which can be a trigger, but so can a pause where the fly suspends. Trout tend to favor the fly with a fall in colder water situations, and it will typically outproduce unweighted flies in water temps under 45 degrees Fahrenheit _ Alex Lafkas
