After reading an article on how folks in the UK do it. That is exactly what I am planning on doing but with a full sinking line. Bobbie on the point and an unweighted fly 3 feet apart." I was thinking that a strip and pause retrieve over deep weeds or structure with an intermediate line might work at certain times.
No. It's not a tactic that readily adapts to flowing water. Fish a bouyant fly as part of a team on a river by all means but it's not a washing line.Have you tried it in the river?
