Awesome thank you, that helps tons. I don't typically fish a lot of deep fast water so these should be perfect for 99% of what I do. I might now have to order a few more.:teef:Here is a quick video we had made to show the basics of the HI-Vis Nymph Leader.
The Hi-vis Nymph leader is for smaller flies. It will not suspend a large double bead-head stonefly nymph, but it will suspend a double nymph set-up of size 12-14 flies.
Most fishermen have their own way of rigging nymph set-ups. If you look on the forum, you will find some great info. I like to have the heavier fly first and then the smaller / lightweight fly attached to the bend of the hook of the heavy fly. In my opinion, this helps me eliminate tangles. Also, the heavy fly will get the flies down deep; the lite fly will swim naturally in the water.
A couple post back, someone mentioned using a hopper/dropper. I do this very often but not with the Hi-Vis nymph leader. I use a dry fly leader, attach a length of tippet (3-6'), then my dry fly (indicator). I then tie tippet to the bend of the hook on the dry fly and have a dropper hanging below. Depending on water depth/speed and casting ability, this dropper can go as deep as you like. Deeper in slow water as fast current will keep the dropper from getting very deep unless it is very heavily weighted (making casting a bear).
Last tip. Often you will be fishing slow / shallow water where that the Hi-Vis nymph leader really shines. Then you come to a deep pool with rough water. No need to change the leader. Simply attach a strike indicator to the end of the Hi-vis section (where it transitions to green). When you move back to slow water, remove the indicator and deliver flies with great presentation (no plops/spats of an indicator) to spooky fish in the shallows.
If you have specific questions, please do not hesitate to email me directly. I check emails more often than I get onto the forum. Get out and fish…
