Ok I've asked similar questions before but I think this is slightly different. When fishing a dry and dropper I am having a hard time getting my dry to float longer than a couple feet. I use frogs fanny floatant, with the dropper about 8-10" below the dry.

1)Is the dropper too close?

2)is my drift causing it to sink quickly?

3)can I use a strike indicator to continue the dropper drift after the dry sinks, or is that just silly?

Thanks for any advise
