In this episode Tom is looking into the world of indicators and dry droppers which are deadly methods when fishing subsurface nymph patterns. Tom shows us the myriad of indicator options that are on the market today from the Thingamabobber to yarn indicators. Tom loves the yarn ones especially in slacker water as they cast better and are extremely sensitive to bites. The other option is to use a Dry Dropper or New Zealand style rig where the nymph is suspended directly below a large dry fly and as Tom explains this works well when there is a hatch on and the fish are not totally rooted to the bottom. There's also the chance that the fish will take the dry fly thus increasing your chances. Tom shows us how to correctly set the indicator to the right depth depending on water depth so that the flies fish in the strike zone. Different weighted flies are required in different water conditions and we learn how to select the right flies to fish correctly under the indicator and in some circumstances with the addition of split shot on the line. Finally we take a look at good combinations of flies to fish under indicators.
