just wondering how you pro's out there put on your bobbers... I mean strike indicators on, mine always seems to slide out of the spot where I want it which likely means I am doing it wrong!!! any suggestions?
Are you referring to the "quick release" indicators? I think those were originally designed by Phil Rowley...but I could be wrong. Good idea, but I find that these are not very sensitive indicators. I use the Thill indicator which makes use of a peg. Advantage - very sensitive. Disadvantage - not so fun trying to pull out the peg with a fish on! :happy: Great for shallow water presentations. Interesting for deep (12-20 foot) presentations.stsfisher said:i use the corkies with the black insert, i think they where developed by Chan or Honey. you basically use like i regular corkie without the toothpick and use the provided black insert, make a small loop above the corkie and then insert black insert not too snug. these corkies are made to release the corkie when you hook up on a fish. do not insert to much or the insert will not let go and you will have to release it manuellly like the toothpick stlye.
No Hook, you don't have to change from wet to dry. I can (and have) spent an entire day on a river only nymphing, but should I change to dry, the twist off or the putty style indicators are very quick and easy to remove. That is the whole point of them. Remove the indicator when changing to dry?? Thanks for the tip.HOOK said:ok i can definately see the advantage of ones like that for stream fishing HOWEVER you have to change flies from dry to wet dont you?? when you do this take off the indicator LOL :beerchug:
