I thought of this question last night on the way home from work, we are going fishing this weekend, so my mind is racing with fishing. I searched the site and found an article by Al Campbell (there was a touching tribute on the fly tying board, and I agree I feel a great loss for someone I never met, his simple flies are great, I bet he was a great guy). But anyway for those of you who nymph or use small midges do you use a pre-made strike indicator (yarn, stickies, puddy, etc..) or do you tie the nymph onto a dry and use the dry as the indicator (with the chance that a fish could take the dry)? Not a very life-changing question but one I would be interested in hearing about. And for those who do/have done both which do you prefer, and are there certain circumstances in which you use one or the other.

A bum-legged old man and a drunk. That's all you got?
That's WHAT I got.
