The Pilot floats were originally developed for fishing with floats and sbirolinos, for example, on trout lakes. They allow you to quickly adjust and adapt the water depth in which you fish. The pilot balls are simply pulled onto the leader over the hook and can then be flexibly adjusted. So you can perfectly and "on-the-go" vary the depth at which the hook is offered, without having to change anything on your rig.
But also when fly fishing with nymphs, floating strike indicators are often used. The requirements for such a bite indicator are a good buoyancy to carry the weight of weighted nymphs through the current, good visibility for quick detection of bites and the possibility to change the distance to the nymph so that different water depths can be fished effectively. These three requirements are met with flying colors by these round, high-floating pilots.
These bite indicators in signal color are made of foam, so they float high on the water. At will, they can be moved on the leader without unintentionally sliding on the tippet during casting.
- Foam strike indicator
- Ideal for fishing with free running floats and sbirolinos
- Freely adjustable along the leader
- Shape: Round
- Color: Mix
- Ø10 mm and Ø15 mm: Content: 6 pcs.
- Ø20 mm and Ø25 mm: Content: 4 pcs.
For a quick and easy installation, you can put your leader through the wire loop and pull the bite indicator onto the monofilament/fluorocarbon. After fishing you can slide the bite indicator back onto the wire loop.
