Looking out at a nice sunny day has got me daydreaming about this again. Several of you have tossed out the phrase "if the conditions are right" then skating/waking can be more effective. If you care to share a little about some of these conditions I would appreciate it. I've only tried using dries a few times, but would like to give it another go this summer. I'm thinking that there are probably quite a wide array of conditions that work for fishing dries, maybe just highlighting some of your favorite conditions would give me a better idea of the ideal time/place/water for this pursuit.
