A set of Martin’s Minnow Jig streamers - 4 x #8 & 4 x #10
Especially tied for rivers (they are also good for lake/reservoir or even inshore salt-water fishing), ideally targeting those larger fish in the river who predate on fry (including those big elusive browns!). A streamer is a lure that usually represents a minnow/fry, which is present in both rivers and stillwaters from July/August onwards. They particularly come into their own for rivers in September, and for stillwaters from September to December. To a trout these patterns seem very much alive when any action is imparted to them - therefore these are fished quite actively (try twitching them down and across through any deep holes!).
