Not sure Stren produces that anymore. The good news is that there are better products... I use a combination of ~10" section of (red) Amnesia followed by another ~10" section of (yellow) Umpqua Indicator Tippet. This is about 4-5 feet from my flies. You can see this stuff sunny, cloudy, or just under the water.

Or you can just use the Umpqua Indicator Tippet section as it comes in bi-color (alternating red/yellow).
