The way these indicators work is that when the coils straighten out during the drift, it's either a fish or the bottom. The coils are already straightened out when you set the hook.

The theory is that the stretch in the coils allows the fish to hold the fly without feeling resistance, but the fisherman still gets an indication that something is on the fly, thus allowing him to set the hook (hopefully) before the fish spits the fly.

You have to be able to see the indicator - it's visual strike detection.

Check out this article for more information.

They use them in spanish nymph tech long leader 15 to 30 ft. There used alot in flyfishing compotitions because the use of a indicator is considered illegal. I found this out when they had the world championship on the little "J". I started a thread on fish erie but no one really knew anything about them. That lead me to look at different nymphing tech. orther than "indicator" styles. I started using them because I wanted somethin else to use as a sighter other than a floating indicator for skinny water purposes.

Hi PF - Maybe we crossed paths on the J. I was the Sector Judge for the Little J during the World Championships held there. The guys on Team Spain were really cool - they got me hammered on Spanish moonshine at the awards banquet. I still have their team pin and the pin of their national flyfishing organization on my vest.
