True, that is deadly.

Another deadly method is a sink tip with a short leader to a white headed zoo cougar type streamer that gets taken down by the sink tip, hovers, then starts to float to the top before the next strip. Even in stained water you can see the take when the white disappears.

I've streamer fished numerous times with no more than 3 or 4 feet of 15 pound test as a leader with a sink tip and if a fish wants to eat they don't even see the fly line. I bet you could literally tie it directly to the fly line if you could fit that through the eye of the hook.

Blaming your equipment because you are not catching fish is like a tennis player yelling at his racket for a bad shot

Interesting analogy. However I don't think there's any blame going on here, at least the way I read into it, I think there's more of a misunderstanding.

Kmudgn... just a suggestion... Go re-read my original post and point out to where I - or anyone else that follows - is “blaming equipment...” Please...
