Default dry/ dropper

Neil,
It sounds like you might have too much weight on your dropper for the dry to support. You can use a larger more heavily hackled fly or a slightly less weighted dropper. I don't really suggest using a strike indicator along with the dry dropper combo. Lot of possibilty for a tangle. If you see that they are taking the dropper consistently, then just use a strike indicator and the bottom fly and not fool with redressing so much.
Hugh
