MickT--I typically have 18-24 incyhes of separation and will occasionally go as much as 30 inches. Beyond that i can't cast with anything approaching decent proficiency. Maybe it's just me, but I'd like to think I'm a decent hand with a fly rod, and certainly I've had plenty of practice. Obviously the depth of the stream you are fishing will be a key factor, but the flat-out fact of the matter is that with a two-fly rig, one of them being a dry, you can't tick the bottom with the same consistency you can when high sticking a nypmh.
