Worth Trying -

First, I'm just getting back into fly fishing after a 12 year layoff. So, there's lots to relearn. I highly recommend you try the New Zealand Strike Indicator. I've always liked how yarn indicators cast vs the bubble kind. My issue with other yarn indicators, the pre-made ones with a rubber loop, they are difficult to remove and/or reposition. Not a problem with the New Zealand Strike Indicator! There is a little bit of a learning curve. I highly recommend you practice before hitting the water. I purchased the larger tubing after I found the tubing that came with this product to be very small in diameter. As a result, you must use a very small amount of yarn. You can stack both sizes of tubing on the needle. Just place the smaller tubing first and slide the large ones over the top of the smaller tubing. A few suggestions... Pre-cut pieces of yarn, apply Gink, & place in a plastic baggy. Just toss in the needle as well. At times, the tubing can slip off.
Best Indicator Available! -
Great indicator for spooky fish in pressured water. You can make the indicator as large or small as needed. Casts like a dream!
BEST Strike Ever -

Indicator is easy to put on leader , Highly visible ,easy to adjust for depth , and it can be taken off without any damage to leader .Only drawback is you have to trim to length , which means carrying scissors to trim .

The regular tubing works perfectly with nymphs as large as #12. The larger tubing works great for larger flies. Use floatant. Just buy this product. It WORKS!!

This strike indicator worked as I expected, easy instalation and floated well. I fished the indicator with only a small amount of yarn and a #12 hares ear, ended up catching a bunch of small trout. Adding a drop of floatant to the yarn will increase the floatibility. The only somewhat negative thing I noticed was when you slide the indicator up to the thicker section of leader it stretches the tubing and can cause it to crack, but the package included tons of tubing so it doesn't bother me.

soft landing -
By: blargent from Newville Pa.
I found out about this product from another fisherman about a week ago. i watched him fish through some riffles and was suprised that it stayed afloat the whole way through. i have always had trouble keeping my (other) indicators floating through the same riffles when fishing a weighted nymph.when i asked him what it was he went on to explain it and praise it in such a way that i thought he had to be a sales rep for the company! i was sold. i went to my local fly shop on sunday and picked up the last pack they had. i tried it out the same evening and was very pleased with its performance. not only does it float well, but it lands softly enough on the water so as to not spook the wary spring creek trout that i most often pursue. the trout also dont seem to mind it floating overhead either which is another problem i always ran into fishing for pressured trout. overall i am very pleased with this product and i dont see myself going back to a bobber style or putty indicator ever again!

These indicators are super easy to attach and adjust and hardly disturb the surface at all... Much quieter and subtle than the plastic type indicators but still very buoyant!
