streamer rigs

Some anglers’ favorite way to fish is with a streamer. There are many different fly lines and strategies dedicated to streamer fishing, but for most anglers you won’t need anything more than a regular floating line and a strong leader.

Application: Simple, yet versatile streamer rigs. These can be used for rivers, stillwater, and even saltwater. 

Keep in mind that if you want to get your fly down deeper in the water column, you can add on splitshot (similar to the standard nymph rig) or use a sinking leader.

You might also want to consider learning the Non-Slip Loop Knot to attach your leader to the streamer(s). It’s stronger than a normal Clinch Knot and allows the streamer to sink better between strips. See the video below.
