Feather Wing Streamers for Gills or Crappie?
Feather wing streamers are lovely things to look at, and certainly classical patterns. I have tied a few, and was quite pleased with how they turned out. They are also a hoot to tie.
However, I have never tried them on Gills or crappie, preferring bucktails or marabou streamers, and even some tied with synthetics such as the hot flash minnow. I like the movement of the ones I use and haven't felt that I got the same movement from the feather wing streamers.
Do any of you fish feather wing streamers for Gills and crappies, and what has worked for you? How do you fish them, and do you get good movement with them somehow?
Thanks and regards,
