I don't indicator fish very often, but when I do....
I use this with my newbies, however we also use a Thingamabobber. The weight on the end and two 6" to 10" tags with the nymphs. It is a sweet set up for a beginner to learn to roll the line up stream and let it drift, the roll again. The Split shot actually pulls the line making it much easier than teaching them overhead which most do not get...LOL

One other side note for bounce rigs. I actually recommend using weightless flies to reduce the dreaded "tetherball" effect.

A peacock and partridge soft hackle up top and a glo-bug on bottom is a solid combo most anywhere.

It may have something to do with similarities with snagging rigs, not sure. CADFG Code, C.2 Art.1 Sec.2.1 (4), It is unlawful to use any weight directly attached below a hook. milt.
