Yaffle,

Fishing a dry downstream with cross stream drag is a very effective technique when many species of caddis are about during their egg-laying flights. There are a large number of caddis egg-layers that have trouble breaking the surface to swim to the bottom and lay eggs and they swim arcross stream until they get through the surface miniscus. More folks should use this waking caddis technique on trout.
