For any streamer anglers out there, do you prefer flash in your streamers, or no flash? If you like flash, do you like a lot, or a little? Or does all this depend on conditions?

Crystal flash on dark colored Wooly Buggers with a big bead head is one of my favorite patterns. Whenever there's a stain in the water, it's my go to fly.

I usually tie the flash pretty heavy, I can always trim it back a bit.

Yes! Today I was fishing clear water with a very flashy steamer and caught this.

I say flash for all! And yes, lots of it.

I personally have never come to a situation and said to myself "dang I wish this fly was less flashy". Kidding aside I do however turn to colored variations of flash a lot of times in the brown, black or olive I think you still get a great look but it is a little more muted (less glare) for low or really clear water situations.
