Rigging and Fishing A Hopper And Streamer Dropper (48 of 56)

The combination of a nymph and a dry fly as a dry/dropper rig is a common tactic. But did you ever think of fishing a dry/streamer combination? With a high-floating dry fly, you can fish a small streamer dead drift, and then when the flies begin to drag you can give the streamer some action to cover more water. Dave Jensen explains how to rig up and fly fish with this combination of flies.
