Default Re: Weight on an emerger or not?

I don't put weight on them. As mentioned, it lets them move more freely, like they might be rising (emerging). Also it gives flexibility. Sometimes I fish them in the surface film/near the surface, other times I put a bit of weight 12 - 18 inches above them on the tippet. This lets them float a bit off the bottom.
