“The mechanics of the system vary, but certain rules are involute: Tie the most heavily weighted fly to the end of the rig; attach the droppers about a foot apart; make the dropper lines no more than 4 inches long to avoid tangling. A stiff dropper tippet, say 2X, helps make the fly stand out straight from the main stem of the leader.” Charlie Meyers shares his thoughts on the wherebys of swinging wet flies in the Denver Post.
