|  Why Euro Lines For Cold Weather Streamer Jigging 
 
 
Hand and line control are a must when working streamers in the deeper columns with a modified euro Rig. Cold water temps create scenarios where trout hold deep in the water column and create less aggressive feeding behaviors, so the goal is to fish your streamer slow and deep. This is where a modified euro Line streamer approach works as line/leader is held off the water to reduce drag, allowing the streamers to ride deep in the water column at a slow pace. In other words, the goal is to high stick/euro fish streamers slow and deep. Mono rigs are popular options, but I feel they have limitations during the colder months. In simple terms-mono rigs create line control challenges during the cold. 
 
The northeast winter months bring cold and damp conditions, creating challenges for hand dexterity. As much as I enjoy fishing my OPST Mono Setup for nymphs and jigging streamers during the other three seasons, I fish euro style lines during the colder months for one reason-better hand and line control during the presentation. My hands lose function to grab, strip, or hand-n-twist mono during cold/damp conditions. Many of my clients and students also favor euro lines rigs during the cold season. Making the switch over to euro style fly lines provide a fly line finish, a thicker surface area to hold onto, which I believe provides easier handling during colder weather. 
 
My intent is not to sell you on my preferred rig but rather provide rational as to why I do switch from a mono style rig to a thin euro line during the cold season.  I cannot tell you how many time I’ve accidently lost control of a mono rig when attempting to set the hook in frigid temps.  Stay with a mono rig if your hand still functions in cold weather. However, if your hands lose utility when temps drop, then you may want to make the switch a euro /competition style line .
 
My preference is the Scientific Anglers Competition Nymph Line- the line is slick, has little memory in the cold, and has less issues with cracking. Please remember that just about every fly line company now makes a euro style line so choose what fits best for you. Next Time I’ll talk about my preferred but simple leader formula for jigging streamers along with a few pointers.   |
