Title: Fish bite indicator

Abstract: A fish-bite indicator (100) comprises an arm (102) pivotally mounted on a pivotal mount (104) at one of its ends and which has a fishing line engagement element (18 and 24) at the other. A helical spring (144) is provided at the pivotal mount (104) to vary the force with which the engagement element (18 and 24) acts on the line (82), the spring (144) acting on one of two parts (120 and 134), which can be selectively rotated relative to one another to vary the torsional force exerted by the helical spring (144). The two parts (120 and 134) are held at a selected one of a plurality of available relative angular positions by mutually engaging castellations (154 and 156).
