Absolutely correct. For instance, I would NEVER recommend my method of tying on the second fly for saltwater fishing, or even for big freshwater fish. It creates a weak point at the first knot since you're putting stress on it in a way it wasn't designed for. But for trout or panfish, it's perfectly fine.

I honestly don't use droppers for big fish. I only use them for fishing for trout.
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.
