Fly-Fishing Techniques, Tactics, & Patterns for Streamers
EXTENT: 256 pages
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.
- 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.

Reviews for Strip-Set
Production standards in this book are impeccable. A cavalcade of hefty brownies will always give you a visual head start but the superb photography, full colour throughout, shows them off to perfection, supported by numerous helpful diagrams and a masterly layout that means Daniel’s wealth of knowledge never translates into cumbersome slabs of daunting copy.
