Indicator Dry Fly Leader
76″ Ultimate Dry Fly with 6″ long Hi-Vis Floating Indicator. This Leader is great when fishing small dry flies that are difficult to see. Also, when fishing flies just below the surface of the water. The Hi-Vis section is easy to track yet has no negative effect on fish. Your fly is still a minimum of 4′-0″ from the indicator section.
These leaders come in two popular lengths. 76″ for 8′-0″ and longer rods and 50″ for rods 8′-0″ or shorter.
This leader is a must for enhancing your dry fly presentations. These Leaders will turn 4-7′ of your favorite tippet and drop your dry with the most gentle of lay-downs. Imagine the drag-free drifts one gets with that much tippet. I currently offer these Thread Furled Leaders” in 0-3 wt. , 4-5-6 wt., and 7-8 wt as these are the most common trout lines. Myself along with other satisfied customers have landed huge fish on the 5-6 leaders using only 7X tippet. The Leaders ability to provide durability, strength and stretch will surprise even the most seasoned angler. We tell fly fishers to start with 4′-0″ of straight line tippet. You can increase this length depending on your casting ability, wind, fly size, etc. Simply put, the most amazing trout dry fly leader money can buy.
We offer these leaders with two different tippet ends. The small micro ring which is 2mm in diameter (so small they float on the end of the leader) or the shorb loop. This is a loop woven into the leader. This option slightly increases the breaking strength of the leader. If you choose the loop option, you must know how to tie a perfection knot or loop in your tippet and connect via the loop to loop method.
To keep these leaders floating all day, you must apply floatant to the a dry leader (before fishing). See our selection of floatants.
