Retrieves - indicator
The indicator, or in their face style, is essentially a no-retrieve technique although letting the rig drift with the breeze can work. If you are doing this on the downwind shore you may well come across a back current where your indicator will seem to be going against the wind. It’s because there’s a sub-surface current opposite to the wind direction and it can be enough of a tow on the sunk flies to actually make the indicator move against the wind, and there’s nothing wrong with this. If you have a surface drift which puts a loop in the line then it will pay to learn how to mend the line to negate the effect of the loop pulling the indicator along too fast. Any downward dip of the indicator or indeed any obvious check in its drift should be met with an immediate strike.
