Default Re: What line for float tubing?

No problem Ard.

A little trick I learned for fishing chironomids under an indicator is clip your forceps to your fly and drop them to the bottom. Then set your indicator six inches to a foot off the bottom. Works great when you don't have a depth finder. I'll fish this method up to 25 ft! Yes, that's a 25ft+ leader! Very tricky to cast but the fish don't care how it hits the water.

Definitely the quick-release indicators make things so much easier!!!

See, some tutorials don't need much. Excellent explaination of the deep water indicator method, thanks.

If I don't have my sonar, I use a little Ice Fishing weight with a clip. Like $.99. Then clip it to the bottom fly, drop it down till it bottoms out then like said, raise it up and set the indicator. I am sending slip indicators to everyone as soon as I get the last two sets of flies.
