You know something completely odd I think from last week is that I tried a stimulator, Royal Coachman, EHC, and a couple of others by themselves and did catch a couple and got a few slaps like you said, but, I decided to try a dropper. I tied on a tiny midge and of all things they started taking the topwater more consistantly! They hit solid and I had more hookups. This could have been a fluke but for the fish I caught over a couple of days last week it worked better than a dry by itself. ?? I only caught one fish on the dropper itself, go figure.
