Dead drift a popper?
Hi, I just read a cool article about dead drifting a popper kind of like a dry fly for smallmouth bass. The article talked about casting 1/4 upstream using a reach cast and/or mending. I then was wondering whether I should:
A - reach cast, mend, feed stacks of line to the popper as it passes by
B - Cast it, then hold the rod high so the fly line has no means of creating drag, then feed line as it passes by
Which should I do? What do you guys do? Is there a better method of dead drifting a popper/dry fly?
