TH­ESE spi­ral in­di­ca­tors are ideal for Euro­pean nymph­ing tech­niques and es­pe­cially the French nymph­ing method when tar­get­ing brown trout and grayling on the rivers. The tightly spi­ralled coloured ny­lon that forms the in­di­ca­tor is ap­prox­i­mately two inches long and there is a tail of straight ny­lon at each end. You can ei­ther at­tach th­ese ends to a small O-ring for easy changeover, or con­nect them straight through to your leader and tip­pet. Max­i­mum stretch of the in­di­ca­tor is 36 inches. This type of in­di­ca­tor is ideal when fish­ing with small flies from size 12 to 20, which are of­ten cast up­stream or slightly to one side and then ac­tu­ally pulled to in­duce a take by re­triev­ing them back down­stream. Used in this man­ner the spi­ral or coiled in­di­ca­tor will de­tect the sub­tlest of takes and also al­lows the an­gler that ex­tra lit­tle bit of time to re­act and set the hook. The in­di­ca­tors are avail­able in hi vis or­ange and hi vis yel­low and you get two in­di­ca­tors per packet.
