Video: How to Jig Streamers in High, Muddy Water

Here’s a great video from George Daniel, in which he explains and demonstrates how jigging a flashy streamer right along the bank can draw strikes from hungry trout. It doesn’t take long for him to demonstrate proof of concept, as he hooks up just upstream from a bridge. It’s a remarkably simple technique and any angler can do.

Even in high, muddy water, you can catch gorgeous trout like this one.

There’s lots more information about fly patterns, dealing with sunlight, and more. This video was made for George’s Penn State Fly Fishing Course, to provide students a look at the stream conditions they would have encountered during a field trip. Distance-learning benefits us, too.

    1. Howard,
      I use to agree with you, but hooking and landing a 7lb winter steelhead in these exact conditions
      right next to the bank, totally changed the mind of this west coast angler.
