Some anglers think that stripping a Woolly Bugger across-stream is the only way to fish streamers, but streamer fishing can include a wide range of patterns and techniques, from swinging baitfish imitations and dead-drifting leeches to waking mice patterns across the surface. Like dry-fly anglers matching the hatch, streamer anglers need to understand the behaviour and characteristics of the large forage items they're imitating if they want to be successful.

Strip-Set is a comprehensive book on tactics for streamers, including new approaches for trout, steelhead, muskie, and bass. World-champion fly fisher George Daniel shares his knowledge of the exciting world of streamer fishing and helps readers develop a set of skills that will be effective anywhere in the world.
  • Patterns from several of the most prominent contemporary streamer tiers, including Blane Chocklett, Kelly Galloup, Rich Strolis, Ben Furimsky, Mike Schmidt, Russ Maddin, and more.
  • Step-by-step photos to help you master casting and presentation.
  • Sections on reading the water, trout behaviour, equipment, casting, and night fishing.
  • Features over 450 detailed photos and illustrations.
