    Dennis you might want to take a look at this:

    I made a Slinky Indicator myself out of some Amnesia. You tie Perfect Loops in both ends of a length of brightly colored Nylon mono about two or so feet long. You wind it tightly on about a 3/8ths diameter bolt (I secured the nylon material in place with rubber bands), drop the whole thing in a pot of boiling water and boil it for 5 minuets, then pop it into the freezer for over night. The next day, unwind the material. It will resemble a slinkey spring. Treat it with floatant and place it in a small ziplock plastic bag for future use. To fish, loop it in, inbetween your T-line and the tippet. It is a lot easier to cast on T-rods than most other strike indicators are, and more sensitive too as well. It will not keep its coilspring memory for ever but it is easy enough to rerun the process used to make these light weight, easy casting indicators.
