I like to use a piece of florescent floating line on my leader when nymphing. I have a long needle that i use to thread the tapered leader into it - scientific anglers 7wt floating DT donated a spool of line to me in a kit...i could not cast that line to save my life for some reason so i hacked off a few 1" pieces to use JUST for this purpose. On a 8' tapered leader, it helps me adjust my depth a little and keeps my flies or bait riding the bottom with little resistance. I really like this setup with (ghasp...) wax worms on a #18 egg hook with a teeny split shot 8" up from the worm, and the floater at about 2-4 feet. it casts okay, even roll casts well with the 7wt. This is also the same setup I use with my 5' UL spinner with 2-4lb test.
