Catching Fish With the New Zealand Strike Indicator

Adjustable

Places the Nymph in Strike Zone

Adjust your indicator so that your nymph is presented exactly in the Trout’s Strike Zone. You can also trim your indicator to different sizes to match conditions.

Stealthy

Doesn’t Spook Trout

Wool Indicator Casts Like A Dry Fly and Lands Gently.

Use the optimal color indicator for the conditions

  • Bright Orange - when sighting is a challenge
  • Black - when there’s a glare and the water surface turns silver/gray - amazing how well Black works in these conditions
  • Chartreuse - best when the background is dark or in low-light conditions
  • White - looks like an air bubble

100% Knotless

No Kinks. No Slip. No Kidding.

  • There are no weaknesses or kinks as our system is 100% knotless.
  • Indicator will not slip -- even with a huge fish on the line, aggressive casting or high wind conditions -- yet is easily adjusted by the angler when desired.
  • If the fish start rising, no problem -- just takes a second to remove the indicator so you can start dry fly fishing immediately.

Land that Trophy of a lifetime!

Accessories We Recommend

DR. SLICK Scissor/Clamp

These clamps are unparalleled. They trim your indicators perfectly - "nice and neat" and the matte black finish is paramount in keeping your presence stealthy. We like the indicators trimmed neatly as they cast better - show strikes better - float higher. The clamps also work great at mashing the barbs down and for releasing fish.

Gear Keeper
Stainless Zinger

We have been using various zingers for four decades! These are our favorite! Great Design - Solid Materials - Quality Construction - Smooth Feel - 50 Pound Cord Strength - Your choice on how you want to attach - The "Snap Clip" is solid - The "Threaded Stud" will not pop off - Stainless steel components. Professional Grade! Quick Connect Split Ring allows quick and easy tool disconnection.

AQUEL Fly Floatant

This premium fly floatant is the world’s best. AQUEL is long lasting, silicon based and won’t melt when it’s hot or harden when it’s cold. While our New Zealand Wool floats better than any other we've used (including synthetics), it floats longer and higher when treated with AQUEL. This has long been our #1 dry fly floatant - keeps our wool dry and performing at its peak.
