Secret “NEW” Streamer Pattern Discovered
The very nature of fly fishing mandates that we are forever adapting to the conditions that we are fishing in. Sometimes the water is high and dirty, sometimes its low and clear. Maybe it’s bluebird skies and high sun, or a downpour. Maybe the water temps are near freezing or just the right side of the comfort zone for trout. Perhaps there is the presence of a predominat or preferred food source.
When it comes to streamer fishing, anglers are always looking for an edge, the ability to unlock that secret code and find a fly pattern that consistently puts fish in the net. Its been very interesting to follow the trends of fly patterns as they are announced on social media, in magazines, on youtube videos, and other mediums – seems like every year a hot new pattern pops up and receives a considerable amount of buzz.
Well, through hundreds of hours of conversation with people “in the know” and even more time of my own personal research and observations I’m happy to report to you that I’ve cracked the code! I’ve finally figured out the fly pattern that will undoubtedly outfish all others for you. Are you ready for it?
The pattern that works far better than any others is the one that you have confidence in. Period.
Sure, I get it – not all patterns were created equal. Some swim differently, some have different color combinations, some are different sizes. At the end of the day, none of that matters unless you have confidence in it. There is an enormous hype train around certain patterns – you’d be lead to believe that fish will basically have no choice but to jump on your hooks if you just as so much throw it in the water. Do yourself a favor, don’t buy into it.
Instead, get out and fish and cast whatever bug you chose with confidence, because at the end of the day that will go a lot further for you.
