Overview

Modern Streamers for Trophy Trout: New Techniques, Tactics, and Patterns by Bob Linsenman, Kelly Galloup

This first modern, all-encompassing manual on the art of streamer fishing teaches new techniques for catching trophy-sized trout on a fly. Streamers are the most effective of all fly patterns for the seduction of large trout, because they imitate the look and behavior of the smaller fish these trophies feed on. Sooner or later, every angler seeking the thrill of landing a trout over 20 inches--a dream fish for most--will need to understand the particular art of streamer fishing. This is the first book written about streamers in over 50 years. Despite streamer fishing's perennial popularity, it has been eclipsed in recent years by the sport's long love affair with dry flies. Revealed here in this indispensable, knowledgeable book are dozens of new streamer patterns and many proven advanced techniques for hooking huge trout, making it a must-buy for the dedicated fly-fisherman at any level of experience. Included in this guide:
* New information on the feeding behavior of large trout and what it means for the angler
* Detailed, illustrated casting and fishing techniques for a variety of conditions
* Advice on netting and releasing trout safely, as well as photographing them
* Color photographs of new and classic patterns, with complete tying recipes
* Includes dozens of how-to illustrations
