Leonard Wright's "Sudden Inch"

“[Leonard] Wright called his technique for putting action on a dry fly ‘the sudden inch,’ and it seemed simple on paper. Instead of casting upstream, Wright suggested casting down and across the current with an upstream mend and giving the fly a slight upstream twitch as it neared a rising trout.” John Gierach talks about the effectiveness of giving flies subtle action in Field & Stream.
