Stripping streamers is one of the best ways to consistently catch large trout. When trout reach a certain size, their diet consists of bugs AND other fish. Remember that food chain thing you learned in grade school? If you're hunting for the largest trout in a particular watershed, you'll have a good chance of finding them with a large streamer pattern. If you're wondering which fly rods are the best for fishing streamers, we've covered that topic in a different post. But the best streamer rod with the wrong fly line will only get you so far. Choosing the right line will help to increase your chances of landing a monster on a streamer.
