Default Re: Upstream Nymphing: Slack or Tight Line?

They were great posts, but they didn't answer my question. Maybe there's not no way to avoid some drag.

Update: I just read an excerpt from Terry Lawton's book: Nymph Fishing: a History of the Art and Paractice. On page 141
he writes that when nymphing upstream drag will set in, but in fast water trout will not have time to inspect the fly, and therefore
will take it even if it's slightly dragging.

Thanks so much,
Randy
