I use the fluorescent fly tying material for making eggs.
Really fuzzy stuff. Got a bag full for $3

Get a film canister and cut an X in the lid. Stick about 1/2" of the string through the cut and pack the rest(8-12") in the canister. Mine has lasted 5 years and still not close to running out.

Try the orange/red/pink for max visibility. I got the green and it gets lost against a green background during bow.


I like that ideal...i use to have a orange vest that had some thread hanging on it I could always strip some fuzz off and watch it float out a long ways. but bow hunting I always used a lighter guess I will hit the fly shop up at bps tomorrow \:\)

An acceptable way in Europe is to smoke a cig. It goes against everything I had ever been taught. So I had to ask the first time I watched them do it, and the answer I got was, we were down wind so it wasn't an issue.

It had no affect, we all got our quota.

i use floaters, and i also check the weather every day before i leave. Our lease runs north to south with a rd all the way thru it and it makes it easy to know where to set up according to the prevailing wind direction.
