Scorpion

The FAQ Question of the Day

3.5.3 What are Monkey Climbers ?

It is a strike indicator made of a metal rod called a needle and a light spool called a bobbin that can slide along the needle. It can be stuck in the ground under your fishing rod and a loop of line clips into the bobbin. When a fish grabs the bait, the line goes tight and the bobbin "climbs" the vertical needle.
