Nice tie, as always, Charlie,

Got me wondering though. I've been told that dry flies, such as Bombers, are ALWAYS fished on a slack line and never waked or skated, as we steelheaders commonly do with our dry flies.

Since Atlantic salmon will rise to a riffled hitch wet fly, why not to a skated or waked Bomber or Green Machine or Whatever?

Or are there hectics who do fish their dries on a tight line downstream and across?

Cheers,

Eric
