Thanks for your replies guys.
There's some interesting things to think about and to try there.
I've ordered some of the Grauval line (9lbs, I was going to go higher as well, but I will wait and see what I think of it first).
And I've got a whole box of boobies (part of an ebay purchase) to decorate the trees around the lakes I fish, and the grass behind me
So, I'm thinking of starting with a booby on the point and a couple of buzzers on droppers.
Which leads me to another question, is it better to fish identical buzzers, or two different ones to see which the trout prefer?
Thats heavy line for buzzers me thinks,ok for pulling lures though.
Already been answered i know but the method is as stated,the washing line and again as stated its really more for the warmer months.Thats not to say buzzers won't work now because they will but just deeper.
Fish three, heaviest on the point and lightest/smallest on top dropper,or try a dawl bach for instance on the top dropper.
If you want to try an indicator,fine.Don't let people put you off with-oh thats not fly fishing.Its no different from using buzzers or whatever under a bushy dry fly or indeed the washing line method.It works,makes it easy to fish the flies at the correct depth and will help to sight those very very slight takes that you might otherwise miss,use it as required rather than the rule.
I'm not the greatest caster in the world and quite often restrict myself to one dropper only as they can be a nightmare at times.Also its worth noting that quite a few fisheries will not allow the use of droppers,can't really understand why but rules are rules i guess.
