wots the best material for a wind indicator on a ft rig
My personnel preferance is either chenille ( the fluffy wool type material used in fly tying , can be sourced from most e-bay for about £2 ish for a metre for loads of very bright colours)
Old cassette tape.
Both are equally as good as the are pretty waterproof , more so the cassette tape, only draw back with tape it's a tad dark in colour.
Hope this helps
good old fashioned wool, with a little electrical tape round the end to stop fraying!
it's not oversensitive and comes in loads of different colours for the fashion concious!
it's also what aerodynamicists use on race cars in wind tunnels, odd but true!
Joss stick ?
Or a shooting partner with a woodbine habit!
Best not Jamacan woodbines though
all of the above r good but the best is a pair of old knickers, that way if you can smell tuna fish you know the wind is definatly blowing towards you !
But would that not send the mind wandering from shot placement to errrrrrm shot placement?
Mine is super-sensitive as I like it that way.....
A pheasant feather on a length of 4lb monofilament fishing line.
Or those biege and brown matching vest and y front set that niels mam got him for xmas wit knob cheese n lemon staines int gusset.
I suddenly feel quite sick
it depends,wot it does do though is help with your breathing technique at the same time
