The Story

New and improved, these fly-fishing Airlock Indicators are made of a lighter weight material for easier casting and higher floatation. Biodegradable EVA foam tracks straighter than conventional plastic. Improved durability with no more dents, leaks, holes, or cracks. Remove the nut and place your leader in the notch in the threaded stud that is attached to the indicator. Then simply replace the nut and twist to tighten.

3 indicators per pack in assorted colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Indicator These indicators are easy to attach to the line and are easy to move up and down the line as you search for the right depth. They don't damage or kink the line at all. There is very little slip in them, once they are locked down tight, unless you have them on a very small tippet. My favorite way to manage that, in shallower water, is to place them just above a double surgeon's knot where I have added tippet. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very diverse! I have used every indicator available stickies to nz. This by far has been the most diverse indicator I have used. 20 years of fly fishing and this coulda saved me so much heart/head ache. I finally bought some and will never use another type of indicators. Will by again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Of all indicators these are my favorites There are many different indicators on the market, but these new revised air locks are my favorite. They flat high, not difficult to lift for recast, highly visible, and best of all, design makes it easy to adjust on leader. My only con with the Orvis store is lack of options on color. I prefer the white (1/2 inch) AirLocks but store only has the three colors.
