I've been using the Stimicator as an indicator with a bead head or small midge dropper. It stays afloat and is easy to see even in poor light conditions. As and added bonus, I've had several takes on the stimicator. Much more fun than an indicator!
An Indicator with a "point" -
By: from CA
I look forward to fishing this both as an attractor, and as indicator with a drop.
It Worked! -
I fished this stimicator in a high sierra pond near Mt.Whitney on a spinning rod with a small drop shot and it caught a nice 11" rainbow. Of the almost a dozen different flies and spinners I used, only this stimicator and a black woolly bugger caught fish.
Useful for fast water -
My wife saw these and ordered for us. Useful for dropper setup, but also found it was very visible and great solo fly for fast water. Used it very sucessfully for caddis replica. Only problem is that it does absorb moisture quickly (even floatant treated) and the foam indicator is not very durable if you are into the fish. Kept the fly, but the orange/yellow foam ball disappeared after a few catches. Overall short story is, I re-ordered it!

used it on the east outlet of the kennebec. my third cast, a brookie grabed it instead of the nymphs below. great substitute for an indicator.
A fish I may not have caught -
By: madmatt from So Cal and CO high country
I just tried my new stimucator flies for the first time and I was pleased. I think they will become a regular thing for me. I fished a nymph with the stimucator about 3 feet up from it and I caught trout on both the nymph and stimucator. I have been using thingamabobbers as indicators and have seem countless trout hit them, but with this my indicator has a hook so when I actually caught fish. I did find the stimucator does not float quit as well as even the small thingamabobber, but it still did its job. I'd say it's comparable to fishing a hopper dropper setup, with a small foam hopper, but easier to see.
Great fly -
I picked up one of these to use as an indicator. Never expected to catch fish on this thing but ended up catching many
Great Fly -
I bought a couple of these and decided to give them a shot. I am mostly a nymph fisherman so I rigged this up and dropped two bead head nymphs off the back. It floated well, casted well and was easily seen. I used it all day with no issues and even caught 3 trout on it that rose to it. Works great as an indicator and gives you a shot at catching a fish on it as well which you don't get out of your standard indicators.
