Female: What can I say you covered lots of water have a better opportunity for you by the sync and that's what you want and guys like Steve Hyde can play a streamer like a strut of various?
Male: He’s a master at it. These are scenes from a recent trip and the snake with the Hyde’s’. Essentially when two people casting streamers, you follow the same rules as you would, dry fly fishing with the rear anchor and always keeping an eye on and his buddy and front and the front angler casting forward of the boat.
Also keep in mind that when casting heavy awaited steamers, if you need to open up your cast and throw a bigger loop to get the fly to turn over the top rather than wising by your port, that if your guide are fishing part.
Male: Right up the tail end of your strip and before you pick up and give it a couple of laugh, little twitches just to make sure nothing is looking at it or following at the end or I found the peer out of the tail end and you can kind of keep it underwater.

Male: I had that. I don’t want to come and mostly you just kind of close the boat and-- Male: It’s actually kind of neat this - he does because I’ll push this right back up to the top.
Male: I’m still here. Alright it comes so strong. He’s really strong. You may need a better size and I don’t know. It is not good. It feels much better. Fine there and I got the little heavy 12 pound test down here.
Male: Oh that’s the healthy fish bud— oh yeah that’s a fish.
