Do you expect it to get eaten more having the indicator ball on top rather than in front like on your stimicator?
I'm not sure. I am just always trying to come up with new ideas and since I recently got a bunch of those balls in the mail I decided to try and use it as a parachute post so I tied a PMX-icator lol. It certainly performed well and the trout were hammering it. I will have to fish it more to see if it just happened to be a "good" day or if there is more to it. It is a really buggy looking fly and I think the rubber legs helped induce some strikes as well. It is certainly worth a round 2.

Looks great man. I dig it.

One thing I’ve always been more interested in is trying out stimi type flies that have mono tied in as exposed loops, and then can be attached to the line like a traditional wool indicator or thingamobber (looping the line through).

Allows for adjusting heights, unlike the “tie a spur of line in for attaching your dry” method.

I think this fly could be a good candidate for this type of thing so you’ve got me thinking about it again

I've always wanted to perfect the same type of fly and came up with a few prototypes but never could quite works out the bugs to get it just right
