I think that 18 inches is an ideal length for a dropper fly to be behind the popper. Even if they only come within a few feet of the popper, they'll see the dropper. And if they check out the popper without hitting, they may take the dropper on the way back down.

Geez, I just rhymed like Dr. Suess there.
