I like the side to side mend idea... I shall adopt that.

Until last year I had never caught a trout while stripping upstream from directly below myself, even though I had employed this sort of tactic many, many a time.

I let it swing allllll the way down, let it settle... striiiiip-striiiiiip-THUMP! I couldn't believe it had happened because I had been covering the water pretty thoroughly for a while without even a sniff. She was sitting pretty shallow too - not anywhere near "the run".
It was the fly, not the technique!! 8)
