    I always put the shot about a foot above the fly & the indicator from 6-7' above the fly.

    Trey --

    First of all, take Crick Addict's advice to heart. Stick with the dry-only or dry/dropper rig until you're feeling really comfortable. That'll also give you time to save up for a spare spool for that new reel -- and, yeah, sooner or later you're gonna want one.... probably for a specialty line of some sort.

    If you do opt for a sink-tip or full-sinking line, you'll probably only use it in the boat. IMHO it's easier to sight fish and target the big ones from a boat with a streamer than it is while you're wading.

    However... you might not have noticed, but, that day we were fishing I was switching back and forth between an indicator/dropper rig and a sinking/streamer rig. I opted for a 7' RIO Powerflex Core Sinking Tapered leader. I'd never tried this before and it was a bit unwieldy at first, but eventually I got the hang of it. Because it was just a leader with a welded loop connector, I was easily switching back and forth while wading the whole time.

    Just saying, it can be done. But do take Crick Addict's advice.

    Thanks for the info! Wow...I never would have thought to go that deep. I did notice some pretty deep holes in the middle of the channel down by Lancaster. Maybe I need to go a bit deeper with my midge.
