Absolutely correct.......and that`s why my two versions, one with cdc in front and the other with plenty of deer hair will be floating and of course i would use some kind of grease to make it float......... as long as i can see the fly on top of the water it works for me

No slam to you, PURIST by any means, my friend. Lord knows if I could get by with nothing but dries I would for sure. Definitely the Hi Point to ff.
None taken........ but i`m in a position that i can use dry flies all summer and if the trout should not rise i periods, i`ll do something else
