Have you ever wanted a strike indicator that has a feather like touch on the water?  The answer just might be water bomb ballons.  These ballons, available on line or at most part supply stores, are inexpensive, extremely light, and simple to use.  Another great quality is you can make them any size you want.  All a person has to do is blow up the ballon to the desired size, tie it off like any other ballon, and then attach it to the leader with two haft hitches.  To remove it pull or cut off the ballon the haft hitches should just fall out releasing the ballon.  The attached picture shows some samples and a bag of 60 ballons that cost less than $2.
