The temps are starting to warm up and it’s got me thinking about chucking streamers on the Animas! I thought this would be a good time to give a quick couple of pointers to help with your streamer game. First of all, grip on the rod is very important. Your hand naturally wants to slide down the grip until it is near the bottom of the cork close to the reel. Choke up on that grip! By moving your hand to the top of the cork with your thumb directly on top you will have more power in your cast and will have more room between the reel and your stripping finger to grab the line. When stripping try to keep your tip low or in the water and keep your rod tip in line with the fly. All of these actions will help to eliminate slack and come tight to the fish quicker. More streamer tips will be coming soon in a new blog post.
