Streamers & Attractors

Streamers are flies which represent sculpins, minnows, bait fish, crayfish and other food forms. All of these creatures have the ability to swim through the water and are preyed upon by trout.

There are two basic types of streamer patterns - imitators and attractors. Imitators represent a specific type of food which is preyed upon by the trout. Fishing imitator patterns requires a knowledge of each food form and how it behaves. Attractors don't represent anything in particular, but are designed to excite a trout into striking. Attractors are usually brightly colored and may contain mylar or other highly reflective materials.
