Tom's Eight Tips on Using Indicators
Published: 06/02/2014
Description: This week’s podcast is 8 tips on indicators—or probably more but I’m calling it 8 and sticking to it. We’ll talk about types, depth, how to rig, weights, and a couple special tricks on how to slow down the drift of your nymphs. In The Fly Box, we range from how to prepare for a saltwater trip to barbless hooks to sunken terrestrials to rod/reel balance. And lots more—even without a special guest I rambled for over an hour this week so I hope I can cover at least one of your daily commutes or a lawn mowing session.
