Stan's Comments On These Patterns:

Both of these Oatman patterns have been successful in catching a variety of fish; bass seem to love them when the patterns are allowed to 'hang' in the current and then retrieved erratically. the Golden Shiner has been attracting browns for me while the Red Fin has been almost an exclusive rainbow getter. I've fished them exclusively so far in size 8 and 10 with similar results for either size. Using real tinsel instead of the mylar type adds just a little weight to the streamers and they float just a little lower in the water column, especially with a faster current.
