2 for 20

Yep, Brown Trout in the Arki are in pre-spawn behavior no doubt. Fish are eating pretty much anything you put in front of them. Pictured above are a nice pair taken on the classic 20-Incher. Still this pattern has to be one of the best stonefly imitations for freestone rivers!

How to work it.....a streamer retrieve guide!

Streamers truly are one of the most productive techniques in the fall. Typically Brown Trout are starting to phase into what we term "pre-spawn" behavior, I time period where this fish are extremely territorial and aggressive and operate in chase mode. This is why we really focus on streamers this time of year. The most typical question I receive in the flyshop...."How do I fish a streamer?" Pretty complex question, but the retrieve is the key to success. Generally this time of year we like an extremely rapid retrieve with even a little rod tip movement. Check out the above demo for some great insight to different retrieve techniques, this will give you a great leg up!
