do you jerk strip it or just fish it across and back. What is the technique there?
That would depend on the situation at hand...
If fishing "the water" I would fish both methods you described. If I were to see a big fish in the open I drift the fly in the direction of the fish and twitch it here and there as it gets close.
Sometimes it works, sometimes they swim like Hell in the other direction.
The hardest part of these meadow type streams I fish allot is the lack of cover for the fly flinger in the winter. The grass gets to be about 6 feet tall in the summer, but in the winter it mind as well be bare earth. The fish can spot you at a pretty good distance on this terrain. The water is so calm and clear the picture they see isn't broken up as it would be on a faster, broken flow.
