Trout in autumn means it’s second streamer season

There’s something about a streamer strike. You’re attentively striping line to give the fly action, making it appear like a fleeing fish, when, suddenly, there’s unremitting tension. The fly-line tightens and either lifts with a jumping evasion or pulls back with a deep hauling tow. 
There is nothing delicate about either means of attempted escape. With the water temperature cooling, we’re into what I think of as the second streamer season – the first was mid-spring. Trout now are willing to chase, which they weren’t when their world was warmer.
