7. How to make a Dorsey Indicator. (7 of 21)

How to create your own yarn indicator in any size or color you want.

Video Transcript:

A great do-it-yourself indicator was developed by Colorado guide, Pat Dorsey. You take a small rubber band used for orthodontist braces and you wrap a loop part of your leader around it five times. You then slip a section of polypropylene macrame yarn that you've fuzzed up with a comb into the loop. Pull the band up to snug the yarn, trim the ends if desired and you're set to go.
You can make your own indicators of any size and color that you want.
