Re: New Zealand strike indicator

Just started using these and love them. Very easy to attach to line and its easy to adjust for different stream depths.

Re: New Zealand strike indicator

I have used them and they're ok. Not the best but they'll get the job done. Most of the time when I'm nymphing, I don't use an indicator. I'll take some gel floatant and coat a 2-4 inch section of leader and just focus on that.

Re: New Zealand strike indicator

I usually use Biostrike with good success. I'll give this stuff a try but I'm also going to try and get away from using an indicator. Not sure how that is going to go.

Re: New Zealand strike indicator

Going without an indicator works well in runs where the water is decently fast. If the water is very slow in a pool, I still always use an indicator. If you have ever fished bait off of your fly rod, picking up strikes without an indicator is much the same as with bait, you just have less time to react. It's really not too bad. But keep a few indicators for the long slow pools!
