Default Re: Strike Indicator Slower than Current?

If you are trying to get to the bottom, then it would be wise to lengthen the distance between the fly and strike indicator. I always go a little longer on the distance at first to make sure that I will hit bottom. If I don't get a snag once and a while on the rocks on the bottom, I know that I need to add length. I do this until I figure out what water column the fish are sitting in.

As far as weight or distance between the fly and strike indicator, I would have to say that it is a combo of both. More weight for faster current. More distance for still water.
