Cutthroat Hi-Vis Nymph Leader with Tippet Ring - 50in - Line Weight 3-4-5. This Nymphing leader has become one of Cutthroat's most popular nymphing leaders. The design of the Hi-Vis Nymph leader came from so many fly fishers having issues casting large wind resistant indicators; add a couple of flies and game over. This leader is created with a brightly coloured (Orange or Chartreuse) Butt Section. This section is treated with Floatant. This creates an 18" long "Strike Indicator". You will be able to detect very subtle strike that have previously gone un-noticed. You will not be able to suspend very heavy flies, but will be fine with small bead heads and emergers size 12 and up.
To keep the butt section floating high, leader floatant will need to be applied to the coloured section prior to fishing for the day. These leaders are best used for short casting scenarios. Don’t expect to make 50’ cast and be able to track the leader, but for most shallow water nymphing conditions, this leader can be extremely effective. Colour of leader is a green butt section with your choice of orange or chartreuse Hi-Vis section.
Questions and Answers
Q: Can I tie Thread Furled Leader to the Fly Line?
A: Yes, use a Three wrap nail knot, cinch knot tight and cut off the loop
Q: What if I do not like the loop or ring connector?
A: We have many customers that tie tippet directly to the leader using a double surgeon's knot. I often tie 4X tipper to the leader, then step down to 5x.
Q: What paste floatant is best?
A: I often prepare my fishing gear the night before I leave. At this time, I will apply a liberal amount of Otter Butter Floatant to my Dry Fly Leader. Most often, this one application is all that is needed. If the leader does sink, I use the Leader Floatant by Loon to put on a wet leader. Otter butter works better on a dry leader, Leader Floatant works better on a leader that has been already saturated.
