New Zealand Strike Indicator

This wool strike indicator offers the ultimate in sensitivity and subtleness.


Presentation is perhaps the most important part of catching fish. When fishing nymphs beneath an indicator in front of spooky trout, having the perfect indicator could be the difference between landing a giant and going home disappointed. This is the best indicator we've found. Easy to attach and remove, this kit includes an applicator tool, a sampling of white and chartreuse wool, and 12 inches of size small replacement tubing. It's subtle as it lands on the water, sensitive when fish touch the fly, and won't get bogged down with water. Combo pack now includes four colors of yarn (black, white, orange, chartreuse.) Size large tubing is used to make larger indicators, size small is used to make smaller indicators. Imported.

    I was excited about this product from the start. Couldn't wait to try it and am very pleased by the ease of use. The adjustable sizing is very helpful in big water (considering our rain/runoff in Colorado may never end!) Great product.

    This tool improves the way to fish nymphs. Much easier to detect the take and it is so easy to adjust. Watch the video and make a few before you hit the water so you know how it works. Welcomed addition to my vest.

    Awesome strike indicator! - 5/27/2015
    By: from Republic, MO

    Works just as advertised! This is a fantastic way to add a strike indicator to your line without the troubles that come with larger/heavier products. I've used foam and putty indicators and both mess with my casting at times, while the New Zealand Strike Indicator does not. You can make it as big or small as you want, and it's super easy to apply.

    The wool is unsinkable after hours of fishing. I'd buy another from Orvis anytime.
