I've spoken with Eric on a couple of occasions, and that's just one more reason why he's a fan of knotted leaders. 3M used to offer a small diameter tubing that you could run up your leader, and that served as an indicator of sorts. The last I heard, they stopped making them.

As far as bobbers spooking fish.... I've used hopper/dropper rigs, and spooked fish. Taking out one or the other usually solves that problem. Depends on the fish, and how shy they are at the moment though.
