This 10 foot, hand tied, knotted leader is ideal for high-stick nymphing whether bottom-bouncing or using the "right-angle-floating-indicator technique". The design of this leader is identical to the leader formula found in John Nagy's Steelhead Guide book.
Features of John Nagy "Hot Butt" Leader and Indicator Kit:
-The "hot butt" section of the leader is constructed of fluorescent orange Sunset Amnesia which acts as a strike indicator when high-stick nymphing.
-The leader's mid-section is made of a hard nylon material (Maxima Chamelon) which is ideal for turning over weighted flies, split-shot and floating indicators.
-The tippet section of the leader consists of 36 inches of 3X Frog Hair Fluorocarbon. Froghair is very strong versus diameter and also very limp (yet abrasion resistant) making it ideal for delicate, drag-free drifts.
-The suppleness of the Frog Hair tippet section easily allows for a "right angle" to be formed at the point where the floating indicator is placed on the leader. Note: It is recommended to keep the tippet section knotless to allow for easy adjustment of floating indicator. Also, tippet section may need to be modified for deeper flows (longer) and clearer flows (lighter tippet diameter).
-Leader comes with an assortment of Little Corkie style floating indicators in various sizes for varying water conditions.
John Nagy Hot Butt Leader and Indicator Kit retails for $20 + $4.00 s/h + $1.33 PA state sales tax (7%) if applicable.
