A Streamer Tactic that Catches More Fish

by | Sep 12, 2014 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

blog-Sept-12-2014-1-jeff-currier-streamer-fishingI didn’t expect to see the South Fork of the Snake again until at least mid-November.  I had my fill there with the One Fly.  And the way the water level has been fluctuating and the crowds enjoying the last of summer, why bother before November.  But then the phone rang on Thursday.  On the other end was my good friend Paul Bruun, the sports writer for the Jackson Hole News.


blog-Sept-12-2014-2-paul-bruun-on-the-southforkPaul has been wanting to do a story about my unusual streamer fishing tactics.  He’s seen my multiple fly rig work its magic for years during our fall fishing exploits.  He even saw my single streamer tricks mop up the 2013 One Fly.  The technique which I learned from competing in the World Championships is not a secret.  I’ve given tidbits on the blog but never a thorough run down.


blog-Sept-12-2014-3-jeff-currier-on-the-southforkThe thorough rundown will now come from Paul who is a far better writer than I.  The article will be out on Wednesday in the Jackson Hole News.  You should be able to track it on the web but for sure I’ll have it on the site shortly after it hits.  We had a great afternoon of streamer fishing!

    Enjoy your blog and frequent updates and thank you for the advice on using multiple streamers. I did check out the Jackson Hole News Guide. I will try this tactic with a double streamer on the Cumberland River here in Kentucky this weekend. As I understand 5′ section then fly on a tag from a surgeons knot and then the big fly on the end. Im sure I will mess it so when you give the further lowdown on your blog an “expert” tips would be appreciated as a relative newcomer to the flyfishing genre of the sport.
    The method seems very similar to the method of attaching nymphs and fishing them when I was guided by one of your local guides, Dan Oas, summer of 2013. He was is an excellent angler and was very proficient in the use of this method for nymphing. If there is a secret in keeping the first fly on the tag from wrapping the rest of the line any commentary would be appreciated.
    Have a great fall and thanks for allowing those of us with an office job to daydream a little!

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
