Default Dry dropper vs indicator nymphing?

So what situations would you prefer a dry dropper over a thingamabobber or vice versa? From my understanding you use droppers in warmer weather while you use indicators during the winter. Would my theory be correct?

If you are going to use an indicator, why not have a hook in it?

If I need to do suspend a nymph, I use a big ugly stimi. Like the preach said, why not use a hook?

Only time I use an indicator is if I am in deep water and I can't really tie on a fly. Other than that I use a floating fly of some type over my nymph.

I’ve been experimenting with an adjustable dry dropper rig to great success. I’ve been trying to up my midge game, so I’ve tried dropping three midges on the adjustable rig. I call it the ménage-a-midge.

I'll use a 1/2" thing a ma bobber in high winds because it creates a little more drag for a water load and adds some weight for casting when it's windy. Otherwise I'm going with the dry. It's got a hook in it in case somebody decides to eat it and it's easier to detect subtle strikes on the droppers.
