Joni has a good illustration of this but is probably away for a while
I've never liked the droppers tied to the hook. Any fish trying to take the point fly has to push the tippet out of the way to do it.
Not good.

I agree. If the fly you are tying to is small with a small hooking gap, tie eye to eye or use droppers.

"Any fish trying to take the point fly has to push the tippet out of the way to do it" ...... Or the leader pushes the fly away from the fish's mouth and you miss the take. With a small hooking gap, a slight deviation of the fly can cause the hook point to miss.
