    Default How long does a dry fly need to float?

    Hi,

    I was fooling around with a pattern by Gary LaFontaine and tied this variation. It sure floats with the little foam "buds".

    It got me thinking. How long, on average, does a fly need to float before the next cast (at which time the cast will again "dry" the fly)?

    I know, when you are fishing to a rising fish, it seems like forever that you need the fly to float into the trout's window. But, I would guess that it is less than 10 seconds in most cases!!!

    What do you think?
