indicator use

Titleguy; over the years I've used indicators in creeks and estuaries with a floating line, a leader the length to get me near bottom ,some split shot to keep it there ,and flatwings.It requires a lot of line mending to control the speed of the line to keep the fly deep and hanging suspended below the indicator as much as possible.It can be a very effective way to fish.Another way is to walk along side your line as the current carries the line,this will cut down on the amount of mending required.I've picked up alot of fish at the end of the drift ,for instance if there is a change in depth or if the bottom starts to rise on your drift ,mend up current to swing your fly or flies with the current, alot of the strikes will happen almost at the end of the swing.
