    Default Temporary bite indicator....

    I usually trot a float. Occasionally I fancy a bit of ledgering in the same session. What I need is a bit of Bling just on the tip of the rod. Blackish, as most rods are is a test of most peeps eyesight.

    I don't fancy paint. So far I have only thought of plasticine in gawdy colours or fixing on in some way that red tubing electricians use to denote a live wire.

    What's your solution other than another rod in yer quiver

    I would just change the tip ring for a threaded one and buy a quiver or
    maybe white tape near the end and day-glow magic marker it.

    Electrical sleeving is not a bad idea, but you would have to slit it longways to fit it on then perhaps tape it in place.

    Yellow?green earth sleeving would probably be most visible.

    That's hardly a temporary solution is it? Dear Life!! It cost 80 quids a couple of weeks ago. You think I'm made of money

    I'm sure you can probably get tape but it all the residue to get off when removing it.. it may damage the finish.

    Sorry mate, how about Tippex it is easily removed but would have to be applied fresh every session ?

    Bit of tin foil wrapped round the tip

    Buy a pack of rizla and wrap a fag paper round the tip, you'll be fine if it doesn't rain

    Tippex is neat but foil could be very convenient indeed. Both would have to be against dark water. Will try a bit of foil tomorrow. Cheers Chaps. Anymore good ideas?

    Slit it and fill it with vasaline? Should stay in place. If its gentle enough fer yer ring after a fine curry nite I can't see it doing the rod finish any harm.

    Two other options that don't require messing with your rod:
    Strike Dayglow leger Bobbin
    Or an option you can't forget; touch leger.
