I'm pretty new to this game, so there's a LOT of basic information and skills I'm lacking.

I've heard of "skittering" a dry fly.

Could someone please explain this to me?

To me it means, when the fly is downstream of me you can raise your rod tip to keep the fly from going under from tension on your fly line. Allowing the fly to hop along on the water surface. I find this effective in the head and tail outs of pools and in front or behind boulders. Basically dangling a carrot.

Bingo! This right here.
