The Dry Dropper Rig

Here’s a little video I shot the other day. Troy is fishing a dry dropper rig, actually two droppers off the back of a big dry. I like to get a 7.5ft 4X leader, and cut it back a ways. I use 3-4 feet of 4X flouro to the first fly, a good sinking nymph like a copper john or something, and then about a foot of 5X flouro to a G-6. You can fish water that you just can’t with a nymph rig. We hooked about 6 fish in that slot.
