I have always loved top-water fishing for trout and especially mousing, but mice are not always effective or abundant. However, baitfish and juvenile trout/ salmon are basically present in all waters, so I created this floating streamer to spice up my days on the water. It is a great Alaska fly when smolt are migrating, and it is a really fun fly in all kinds of brown trout water. There are lots of situations where you can't fish this fly too fast. Double-hand stripping with occasional pauses is a super exciting way to fish this fly and is way more fun than nymphing!
