I fish streamers on the Mo without a spey rod very successfully and have for years, but I found this new approach interesting. I fish streamers there like they did. By casting across and mending the streamers get down to where the fish are holding. I do a strip set when I get hits. That way if I miss, the fish will typically hit it again as its not that far away. Ive had trout hit my streamer over a dozen times before I hooked up.

i have been swinging for steelhead my whole life so the novelty of fishing the swing is kinda wore off on me i prefer a thick caddis hatch and rising trout.. If i had grown up doing that i imagine i'd feel differently. looks very effective just doesn't hold a lot of appeal to me.. The streamer fishing I do like doing is on the Madison wading through the channels below Ennis short casts and seeing the fish come out from under the cut banks, that would get me going:)

Rob. Since I quit guiding I virtually never nymph fish. After staring at bobbers for years it hasn't much appeal. I typically focus on top water fishing as I like the visual aspect. But, streamer fishing is a nice change up for me especially during those months when rising fish are pretty rare.
