Tom’s 100th podcast for Orvis focuses on streamer techniques and offers several ways to improve this “very active way of fishing.” If you want to catch big trout, Tom says, fish streamers.
Excerpt: “Bear in mind that only a certain percentage of fish in a pool will take a streamer. And I’m not sure why. A streamer is usually not imitating an insect. It’s imitating a baitfish, or a crayfish, or a leech, and in any given population of trout, there are a certain number of fish that kind of graduate from feeding on insects to the bigger prey. And they’re usually the bigger fish — that’s how they get bigger.”
