Default Re: Strike Indicator Affecting casting Distance by ~ 25%

Hi jamieof,

Larry is correct that a strike indicator reduces casting distance. But some are less aerodynamic than others. Try a small Thingamabob, a dry fly or a small yarn indicator. The Thingamabob may be the most aerodynamic and give good results in still water. The foam Butterfly style has a small frontal area on the edge but eventually the flat side of the indicator will present a high resistance and decrease your cast.
