Received mine on Wednesday. They look really nice.

Mary, I could hardly see that #22 under the cellophane tape. Thought it was a stray hair for a minute!

Joni, did you get the Chromies?

Bear, did you get the Illiminators?

Great swap! Thank Joni.

Joni,

How does the float work? This is for stillwater fishing - right?

Joni: Received the chironomids today, nice job everyone, can't wait to hit the lake to try them out! Thanks so much for the slip indicator.

Pocono: Yes you are correct, the slip indicator is for stillwater fishing when you are using long leaders 12-15ft or longer. With the long leader and an indicator it makes it hard to net the fish with a normal indicator on the leader. I didn't know how to rig it either so I did a Google search, here is what they say:
You thread your leader through the hole in the peg first and run it up the line. You then thread the leader through the hole in the indicator and run it up the line. Find the desired depth you wish to fish and then holding the peg and the indicator apart you push the peg into the indicator leaving a loop of the leader outside of the indicator. When you set the hook on the fish the two pieces of the indicator will come apart and slip down the leader thus not interfering with netting the fish
