1st off,nice Brown!
I never used to use them for the very reason stated.
They remind me of Bobber Fishing with a Spin Rig.
Not Altruistic or pure I thought.(Cheating?)
by chance, a friend said they were very helpful when Nymphing.
Still not convinced,
I tied on a small amount of red Amnesia.
It did help me notice more Takes.
So one fine day on a Native Stream I figured WTH,let's try em out.
And I was rewarded with a great Lesson.
If you get more Strikes on a Indicator than your Nymph...
It's time to make your Indicator a Dry with some Hi-Viz material in them.
Just run a Dry and Nymph Dropper.
