Palsa Strike Adhesive Indicators

I purchased these to try something new. I wanted my bait to float with the current and stay off the bottom. I was able to do this better than I hoped.
I was using different baits, some heavier, some lighter. trial and error set me straight. Attach one,or two at the depth desired then attach two or three
more to float the whole thing. I was using a #8 hook and the baits varied. I had my limit of trout in
less than thirty minutes. I showed two grandsons
what I was doing; and with a little help they too had
their limits. I will try this out on other fish that are suspended.

Palsa strike indicators
the first time I ever tried these I was given one by a fisherman that could tell at the time I was a beginner at fly fishing, soon I was catching rainbows on the size 22 bead-head pattern he recommended from my fly box that I would have passed over if not for him. I am still in debt to this man who did not know me at all but taught me so much in a matter of seconds. The only downfall I can see as others have commented about fish striking at these indicators, this has only happened to me when fishing with the brightly colored ones I now only use white. I think maybe stocked Trout think the colored ones maybe "free floating" power baits? but when presented correctly in flowing waters its' as easy to fly fish as when you where a child watching a "cork" and minnow set up for Crappie!

These are very good indicators for the price. I can use one of the for a ton of trips. The only drawback is that sometimes when you pull your fly out of the water it will pop like a Pop-R. This does not seem to worry the fish very much. I do sometimes have fish hit at it and try to take a bite out of it. So take a few with you to the stream or lake because you might have to replace one if this happens.

I dont use these strike indicators for everyday fishing. BUT !!!!!! they are my go to when the fish move into water thats 10 inches or less. They have a smaller profile and other than the occasional fish that grabs one (especially in the orange) the fish dont seem to notice there even there. I give em 5 stars even though once their on you really cant adjust them.
