Be a Dull Fly Fisherman
We all love some flash in our fly streamers, sometimes the more the merrier. I am especially guilty of this when it comes to off-colored water. It’s already the middle of August my fishy friends - and that means slow, gin-clear water.
Flash in your streamer can actually spook fish in these scenarios. Spring creek…..forget about it. Not only do you need a streamer dead close to the naturals, but your presentation needs to be stealthy on top of it.
In these scenarios, look to streamers that are dull and muted, without any flash. I’ve picked out a couple of my favorite streamer fly fishing flies below to give you a good idea.
