A little flash

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These things have landed tons of fish for my buddy, but I've been lucky to not need to fish streamers that much recently and haven't used them yet. I look forward to throwing one on soon!

Slay it anytime almost anywhere

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really this review is not needed as you can get an idea of how well these buggers work just by reading other reviews and checking out the type of fish people have caught on these. I will say that if I am not catching fish then I always resort to these buggers and they never let me down. You can fish these on rivers and lakes and they work equally well in both environments. Another thing I love about using these buggers is how hard the fish hit them. You know when you have a fish on since they just crush these streamers.

Big fish necessity

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Big fish are meat eaters. Big fish will eat their young. Big fish would much rather eat a leach or salamander than a bug. I know this because I have hooked up more big fish on larger streamers than tiny flies--although flies will work with the big guys--especially larger dragon fly nymphs. When I get a nasty bleeder, I can't let it die in vain--so I eat it if its legal. It hurts--but I eat it. When I clean a big fish I always look in its stomach. A stomach pump will not suck out a four inch salamander or leach. You have to perform an autopsy to see what the big guys eat. Sometimes there is surpisingly nothing in their stomach. Sometimes you will see a small pine cone and wonder about pine cone patterns. But usually you will see real meat in the stomach of a big fish, and a streamer like this bead head crystal bugger looks more like meat to a fish than a fly. Want to catch big fish? Try a bugger. Photo of Eastern Brook that agrees the reviews below. Beadhead crystal bugger shook out seconds before photo could be taken--you'll have to take my word on it--I didn't want to stick it back in. Hammered lake near road. Dusk.

Big fish necessity

This streamer absolutely crushes on Lakes and rivers. Fished at dawn or dusk near the rivers bank and your sure to have some success with this streamer. I use a size 10 and 12 for the Provo and Uinta's and have caught fish nearly everytime I've used it. A must have!

new found love

    Streamer fishing is the sh*@. It's that simple. My buddy always raved about streamers and how much fun it was to fish streamers on the river, but little did I know how much fun was to come. Fish absolutely murder this streamer, and I've had great success on lakes, ponds, and rivers flowing from 150-1,600cfs. I thought these were too big and colorful to work, but I was wrong.

    Nice leech

      Buggers are one of the most trusted/used streamers out there and for good reason. They are tied to mimic a leech and have worked forever. The added flash and bead head will definitely get those territorial trout to strike. Beyond the bead, this doesnt feel weighted but these ties are of amazing quality.
