Yet there is a certain aesthetic about fishing without a bobber, especially in steelhead and salmon rivers. Could you imagine putting on a big indicator ad split shot when fishing the Dee? The Skagit in April? It just doesn't fit most angler's perception of the experience.

I see the wisdom in how trout anglers put weights and bobbers on their lines but almost 100% of the time it's to make fishing easier, not harder. I find your comment fascinating that in New Zealand dries are too easy so people use indicators and nymphs!

This tells me I need to go experience some of this 'easy' fishing
