Pattern Description
The yarn indicator is the most sensitive indicator I have found. While there are commercially made versions available, I prefer to tie my own from macramé yarn directly into the leader butt. The knot I use is a relatively simple slipknot, but the yarn is attached in a unique manner. Follow the directions closely and try this indicator the next time youre out. It is more buoyant, visible and sensitive than any other indicator, and while it can be a bit wind resistant to cast, the sensitivity far outweighs any liabilities.
