I often use a piece of stick as a controller and simply attach it to the line by a couple of pellet bands and add a shot or two to either end to give it some casting weight. Okay, it lays flat but it does a job and if weeded they simply come off and leave you with the bands and shot. Around my lake there is a lifetime supply so no need to waste time varnishing etc.

They are very common and are often in gardens and growing wild.
In summer they look like this and are often covered in butterflies.
