Default Re: Explain what this flyfisher is doing

Yes, you are correct in your assumption. This is referred to as "high sticking." Simply, there are some instances where the drift is too short or the water between where you are fishing is too fast to make mending worthwhile or effective, and keeping your line off the water and following the drift is enough to eliminate drag. Especially useful on smaller streams.
