Rattle Rouser streamer is a good searching pattern because it has
auditory appeal in addition to visual appeal. It has a rattle
cylinder incorporated into their design that sends out a tantalizing
clicking sound. Some predatory fish have better visual
capabilities than others but all fish rely on their "lateral
line" nerve to help them find food. Their lateral line
sensor picks up vibrations sent through the water by noise. An
abrupt or unnatural noise will spook fish but the subtle click, pop,
or flutter of unsuspecting and wounded prey will attract the
attention of a curious or hungry predator, especially in murky
water, where fish rely on hearing to locate food.
This streamer is an excellent pattern for game fish that feed on
minnows. From Florida to Texas, the Rattle Rouser's have
caught bass, catfish, stripped bass, redfish, speckled trout,
flounder, king mackerel, and snook. Also in Montana, a friend
of mine took some nice 22" brown trout with a gold/olive R.R.
