While strip, twitch and wiggle might seem to be rather suggestive language, the strip, twitch and wiggle can be some of the most important techniques that you can master when fishing stillwater situations.

When fishing streams for trout imparting action is only used occasionally and under very specific situations; however when fishing in stillwaters using leeches, damsel and dragon fly nymphs, and similar imitations imparting action is an essential part presenting the fly. This is where the angler must know and understand the various forms of stripping, twitching and wiggling.
