Re­trieves - in­di­ca­tor

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Focus On -

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.
