Fishing Strategies:

Baitfish, leeches, and minnows provide trout with more bang for their buck and they rarely refuse the opportunity to eat one.  You can opt to dead drift or strip the Slumpbuster as a steamer.  We have had success with both methods.  Although, in most cases, we strip the Slumpbuster with a traditional down and across delivery.  We have found that a slow retrieve produces the best results, but don’t be afraid to think outside the box from time to time and mix things up with a quick retrieve.  The constant pulsating action of the pine squirrel strip will fool even the most selective trout.  Do not be afraid to tuck this fly close to all types of structure including, undercut banks, and heavy drop offs or deeper slots.
