New "Perfect Fly" K.I.S.S. Strike Indicators:
I will have to admit, strike indicators are one thing that I have little use for. They
have their place but I usually refuse to use one even when I know I probably should.
One of the reasons has always been the hassle of putting them on and taking them
off. I admitted a few days ago that I despised changing leaders and I really despise
changing leaders because of a stupid strike indicator that has to be installed on the
leader in such a way that it destroys it. If you have to cut your leader or tippet off, or
retie anything to use one, then that strike indicator is pure junk as far as I am
When you look at a typical fly shop catalog, you would think selecting a strike
indicator required a Ph.D. in fly fishing. There are many types ranging from really
stupid bream float looking things to silly puddy that gets all over your hands, leader,
tippet and anything else it touches. They make them out of everything from a balls
of yarn to a rubber balloon.
If you will read the information included on our new "Perfect Fly" K.I.S.S. Strike
Indicators, I want have to repeat it here. It explains why I think our indicators are
the best you can buy. By the way, K.I.S.S. is an acronym for "Keep it simple
stupid". Please buy them because we have enough of them to float the new Titanic
Ship in Pigeon Forge.
"Tailwaters" will be continued tomorrow...
