Fly fishing streamers are a type of artificial fly typically used to imitate larger prey like baitfish, crayfish, leeches, and even small frogs or mice. They're significantly bigger and flashier than dry flies or nymphs, and they're fished with an active retrieve, meaning you're constantly stripping line and manipulating the fly in the water to mimic the movements of its real-life counterpart.
