Question do nymphs swim???

since my fishing techniques more or less suck, I end up trying dumb stuff. But theres one thing I do that works pretty good for me in creeks: I cast a hares ear downstream, then I retrieve it like a spoon (spinning rods) or a streamer, making the nymph go by the place where I think the trout are. This actually works, but Im not sure why and Im a bit curious: Why are the trout taking the fly? might they think its a small fish or can some types of nymphs swim upstream?
thanks
