Jason Rieke is an engineering student turned trout bum. He spends his summers guiding in the Rockies, and when he’s not with clients, he’s most likely fishing himself. Because of the sheer amount of time he spends on the water, Jason’s become skilled in a wide variety of tactics, but his go-to flies are streamers. As someone who has relatively little experience fishing streamers, I was eager to pick Jason’s brain about how he has such consistent success with them. Toward the end, we also get into mousing at night for large fish, something he does frequently during the summer. If bigger, bulkier flies are a bit outside your comfort zone, this is the episode for you.
