How deep without weighted flies?
I was wondering how deep you can fish in a pretty good current without using a weighted fly. I hung a clouser minnow on the bottom where I am fishing about 70' from shore. It is at least 14' deep there. I have hung up on the bottom a little closer 3 times. I am starting to think that I may not need to use a clouser to get as deep as I need to. Maybe cast farther up river allowing more time for the fly to sink before the swing. Or maybe cast farther down river with a clouser and do more stripping and less swinging. Any thoughts?
