Streamers are used to imitate live bait. They are fished under the water surface and usually through deep pools or in lakes. The deeper the better is usually the case for streamers. Like nymphs, they are weighted to get the streamer down deep where large fish are lurking for a big meal.

Basic streamer patterns include:

Woolly Buggers

Muddler Minnow

Leech Patterns
