This is the ultimate Hi-Vis Leader from Umpqua. This 10 foot leader is the only one of the market to feature a vivid NEON RED section integrated into the taper. The first 36 inches of butt section is a matte-milky color for maximum constrast. The next 24 inch section features a Hi-Vis NEON RED Indicator section. These two colors combine to offer the highest visual color contract and vibrancy of any indicator leader, and a bright visual separation between butt and tippet sections.
Great for high sticking or Euro nymphing
Depth control is visually calibrated with the raising and lowering of the red indicator section which is 5 feet above your fly
Great visual indicator for following the leader/fly while either indicator nymphing or dry fly fishing
The RED HOT is like a ''gun sight'' for tracking the fly in slow or stillwaters

The thick butt section helps turn over your weighted nymphs. The bright red section is easier to see than the comparable Rio leader. Great leader for European Nymphing - you can add additional sighter tippet or a tippet ring and tippet if desired.

Great leader- no need to modify unless you want to add a dropper. great vis- strong. Have been using the same one for 6 trip so far. I did use a tippit ring the first couple of times out but switched to surg knot. now my go to!!
