Dear waterman,

There is no need for complicated flies, just grease a glo-bug with floatant and tie your nymphs off the bend if you want a strike indicator fly.

Don't ask me how I know it works I just know it works.

Regards,
Tim Murphy

I use Loon's Bio-strike and its amazing. I can make it any size I want and it floats like a cork.

A size 12 drake . Doesn't matter what color it is. Caught fish with it any time of year, even in the dead of winter.

I've seen yarn indicators that have hooks tied into them. I'm thinking about trying it on the next on I make myself.

I've whipped a loop at the end of the fly line (just below the loop) with red thread. Because it's at the juncture of line and leader it won't act as a bobber, but it goes me a good look at the line "pause" I'll also tie on a # 12 humpty or Wulll and then a small nymph tied of the bend of that.

I do a lot of steelhead fishing and I've given up on indicators. I still carry the pinch on foam and the little balsa / toothpick indicators, but I rarely use them. I have tough time getting a good drift with indicators. What helps me is using different colors of leader material to help me judge depth. And I concentrate like hell.

Tom, we should fish together sometime-- I like your style. I used an indicator 90 percent of the time I was in Erie this last trip and 3 of the four fish I caught were when I removed it in order to get better control over my drift.

That has happened to me a bunch of times. It is quite apalling when you can't figure out what fly to use and the damn things are hitting a glowing styrofoam ball!

I also live up in Erie and I like to use the white yarn indicators with the o rings. They can be used with up to 3 bb size split shot and are reusable and do not spook fish.
