Video Pro Tips: A Better Way to Swing Wet Flies and Streamers

A lot of anglers know that swinging wet flies and streamers can be a very effective way to catch trout, but in this video, Joe Rotter from Red’s Fly Shop argues that most fly fishermen are doing it wrong.

He also makes the case that trout want to see where their prey is coming from–the rocky streambottom–rather than just swing into view out of nowhere.

  1. Phil, that’s a great vid for folks that get skunked and don’t know why, for new comers that get skunked and don’t know why, and a good job of holding our old timer heads underwater long enough to remember why we’re getting skunked.
