Fly Tying Video-Mike Schmidt & The Meal Ticket

I am super excited to have Mike Schmidt on the podcast! Mike is a hell of a fly tyer, and he kind of specializes in streamers. I am talking about the really big stuff you throw for huge fish. This is an articulate streamer about 5 inches long. Mike designed it to be light enough to cast with a fast action 5 weight, but heavy enough to get down. It looks like a small Chub or Brown Trout and has 2 hooks. One hook is up, and the other one is down. This means that if a big Trout short strikes, it still will get stuck.

This winter I have been dredging my streamers with a Rio Fast sink - 5.6 ips Versileader. I am talking low and slow style and catching more big Trout than I thought possible in 31 degree water with big streamers. Tie some up, drag it on the bottom and loose the shack nasties...or you can wimp out and fish it in the spring, cupcake...
