For some anglers the mere thought of using a streamer imitation on spring creeks would cause them to shudder. When many anglers think of spring creek fishing the mayfly hatches reign supreme caddis hatches are tolerated and midge hatches are accepted but mayflies are preferred. A few terrestrials such as hoppers are alright and there is much talk of ants and beetles but relatively few anglers actually use them. Some anglers rely on nymphs while others prefer to use only dry flies and emergers on the surface. There is also a segment of the spring creek angler population which embraces all methods of fly fishing to be successful.
