I was first introduced to the Palsa Pinch On Floats strike indicators while fishing the Yampa River tailwaters below Stagecoach State Park. This was probably 10 or more years ago, a time when the yarn poly-vee was as good as it got...at least, so I thought! While sight fishing a decent run, holding a few wily rainbows, I noticed that whenever my massive "ball of yarn" came over them that they would move to the side. Once my rig had drifted through, yep you guessed it, they would move right back. Absurd I thought, fish can't be that smart. That was one of my first introductions to highly educated trout that were sensitive to both indicators and split shot. Upon my realization, I voiced my frustration to my buddy just upstream. He had the solution, Palsa Pinch On Strike Indicators...his were white. Since that day, even with the advent of the varying sizes/colors of the Thingamambobber, I've carried Palsa Pinch On Indicators in my bag.
