20. Is the fly pattern that important? (20 of 20)
You'll notice that we concentrated more on streamer fishing technique than we did on choosing fly patterns and colors. Honestly, I think picking a streamer is more a matter of luck and whimsy, and in the long run, it might not matter that much. Sure, there are some days when a particular streamer pattern seems to light up the fish, but I'm not sure that any old streamer might work. Pick a streamer, fish it various ways, and then if it doesn't work, it just might not be a streamer day.
The unpredictability is what makes fly fishing fun. ♪ [music] ♪
