Indicators can be put to good use for those not entirely confident about watching a leader to twitch. While they have their critics, beginners in particular can benefit from using them. The important thing is to keep in touch with your flies by inching them back. This way, nobody can be accused of ‘float fishing’!
Although considered the work of the devil, indicators like this float putty can be worth their weight in gold during a flat calm.
