Fish-Skull Circus Peanut Video- Express Cut
Fish-Skull Circus Peanut Video- Full Length Tutorial
This articulated streamer was one of my go to streamers last fishing season. The Fish Skull version of the Circus Peanut Streamer was particularly effective in the olive coloration featured in the video. This color scheme combined with the articulation is very effective on rivers such as Wyoming's North Platte. It is also effective on the Bighorn River.
Don't hesitate to tie this pattern and use it on smaller streams too. Big trout eat big flies.
Other good color combinations for the Fish-Skull Circus Peanut would be - Black, Brown/Yellow, Tan/Yellow, and White.
