Default Re: Upstream Nymphing: Slack or Tight Line?

In his books Rosenbauer writes that when nymphing upstream he uses a weighted nymph, but I don't think he believes in using a lot of weight as he also writes that nymphs should be fished near, but not on the bottom. If a nymph is heavily weighted, it will continually get hooked on the bottom.

Perhaps if there's a little drag because of the faster surface water, it won't really matter.

I guess I still don't see why upstream nymphing shouldn't be done with slack like and an indicator, as that will reduce drag.
