That's how I tie my droppers on also but if I may add,make sure the tag end that you are tying your dropper on is the end attached to the butt section or the leader stepping up to your butt section or fly line .This is not only stronger but ensures the dropper fly will lie in the same direction as the end fly,it is also suggested to try to leave at least 18 in.between flies.The reason being if the fish goes for the dropper first there is less chance of being side hooked by the end fly before it takes the dropper.
