Certain nymphs are very strong swimmers- Isonychia for instance ( use a zug bug instead of a hare's ear) and sulphurs. The bugs that tend to be the strongest swimmers are "burrowers" rather than clingers. Likewise, caddis as theyemerge "swim up" through the water column. Try a sparkle caddis pupae or emerger fished on the swing on a tight line and see what happens.
