Rio Indicator Leader
I just picked up one of the rio indicator leaders at the local fly shop because I thought it looked like a great idea...has anyone else tried them out yet?

Hi ksbrowntrout2,

I have not tried the RIO indicator leader. I think it is designed for lake fishing.


Indicator Leader
NEW for 2009
These 10 ft (3 m) tapered leaders feature a short orange butt section for attaching an indicator to, followed by a very long fine, level tippet section of about 7 ft. This is an excellent leader for chironomid fishing or whenever you need the flies to sink fast. The long, level tippet does not slow down the sink rate as a more conventional taper does and the heavy butt section makes casting the indicator easy. Ideal for nymphing out of a drift boat or in lakes.

10 ft (3 m); 6X - 0X

Re: Rio Indicator Leader
