A streamer is not only a great change-up in the winter, it can be the best fly in your box - if you fish it well. There are some changes to make for a wintertime streamer approach, versus the warmer seasons. And those nuances in presentation make all the difference.

In this episode my friend, Austin Dando, and I share our best tips for fishing streamers in the winter.

We Cover the Following

  • Why, when, where and how
  • Gear for winter streamers
  • The flies and the lines
  • Benefits of fishing streamers in the winter
  • Presentation specifics
  • The Super-Pause
  • Low and slow?
  • Water types to focus on
  • How far will a trout move?
  • Stripping, jigging, drifting
  • . . . and more
