i dont understand how indicator nymphing is any "easier" then fishing a dry fly or swung fly. you still have to mend, read water, present in dead drift (or slower then dead drift). combine in buckets that or 40 feet on the other side of the current, stack mending, getting the flies to the proper depth, etc... you also have to be fast on the hook set alot of the time. sure there are spots where it is super easy, but there are also perfectly even swing runs where you barely even have to make a mend. and to claim swining is HARDER? less effective, maybe. harder, not so much. select a fly and tip, cast, mend, maybe lift some of the line off the water. look around smoking ur stoogie, watch some bald eagels. step downstream and repeat... set the hook when you hear ur drag start to sing... with that said, im lookin forward to testing some of the new bobbers in this thread.
