Interesting video for sure. I felt that groan right at the beginning. Tight lines!

Drop shot is the term made popular by Kelly Galloup. He called it drop shot after the method used by bass fishers.

 
The method used in fly fishing was first introduced in in the Feb. 2005 issue of Fly Fisherman Magazine by Larry Tullis. Larry Tullis called it Bounce Nymphing which is what I call it since it predated Kelly calling it drop shotting. It is a method that was and is used on the Provo River.
 
Here is recent shortened digital version from 2012. The original was much more complete with drawings of set ups and strategies.

I've been using a drop-shot or bounce nymphing. I like it. I like how Kelly Galloup hitches his dropper above a blood knot to stop the dropper from twitsing around the main leader. Also makes for much easier fly changes, especially after the dropper is too short for my fat fingers to tie a new fly onto.
