Fall Streamers

Looking for some juicy streamers to swing in your favorite trout stream or pond in the coming Fall? Check out these attractive flies from a streamer swap hosted by Scott Daskiewich.

The season of Fall is one of change for the flyfisher. Summer melts away as temperatures drop and daylight fades. Fishing seasons end, but new opportunities begin in the form of aggressive fish readying to spawn or fatten up for the coming winter. To keep up with these changes, the flyfisher turns to bright patterns designed to incite the primal instincts of fish invigorated by the cooling waters. With these thoughts in mind, streamer@ list member Bob Petti suggested a Fall Swap to load our collective boxes with flies that would be most likely fished in the Fall. In a true international effort, tyers from the USA and Canada participated with great results. As always, I'm grateful to be able to participate with such a talented group as the streamers@ list. Thanks to all.

Swapmeister,
Scott Daskiewich
