Default Re: Upstream Nymphing: Slack or Tight Line?

Silver Creek,

I'm not sure what you mean by "when you lift the line." I thought upstream nymphing on tight line is done with the rod pointed parallel to the water, so there is no lift; and I still don't understand why, once the leader straightens out, there is no drag as the fly is being pulled, by the light line which is being retrieved and the speed of the surface current, and is therefore moving faster than the bottom (slower) current.
