It is very much a real tactic that is very effective as you found when caddis are egg-laying. I suspect the reason it is rarely heard of, talked about, or seen in use is we have it drummed into us by books, magazines, fly fishing instructors, fly fishing friends, etc. to make sure you get a "drag free drift" when fishing dries or you will either put the fish down or have them ignore your fly.
