The magic box that your friends call a computer does more than simply deliver p0rn, and Lady Gaga, to your video screen, my plucky young friend. It can also create and what we in the biz call "save" files, to be brought up at later dates.

I've invested hours in THE ULTIMATE NYMPHING VIDEO, that's how.

You have a whipped loop and can change leaders. I have nail knotted left over butt to my line. It must function as dry and nymph butt. Figure a ring might just work there.

Or I could send the Sharkskin back to SA again and them I want yet another replacement. But the hip old cats say loops are for weenies, so I nail knotted it to prove I am a real man.


Cut it back to 2-3 inches and put perfection loop in it. Problem solved.

Loops are not cool.

Didn't you read, he has invested life in THE ULTIMATE NYMPHING VIDEO and does not understand this. Trade him this for beer. You all win.

Am I no longer contributing anything of use to this thread? I feel I've gone outside the scope of "remotely helpful" at this stage. I think there's an OT thread calling my name.

Adieu.

(that means "goodbye," chimmy)

I use a similar nymph rig that Jimmy uses. I also am a big fan of the tippet ring. Those things are awesome. It saves the butt section and indicates when you need to add tippet.

I also like to use another nymph leader that incorporates a bi-color sighter for the butt section.

1 foot of 20 pound red amnesia blood knotted to 1 foot of 15 pound green amnesia > tippet ring > 3 to 4 feet of 4x or 5X tippet > double surgeons knot to 20" of 5x or 6x tippet. I use the tag end of the surgeons knot as a dropper.

I have no interest in learning how to fish from a fish counter.

Thank God, content so I can stay on topic!

How well does the green actually show up? The red's pretty good, but does the green conduct light like crazy fiberoptic action red? In the smaller diameters?

...still lost on what resemblence i have to wetnet or anything remotely close to a competition-oriented fisherman...

But in reality - i've never had much use for the amnesia at the butt end - that close to the fly line - i can just use the end of my fly line :) What i need is visibility further down the line. I like the coils, sighters, small moveable indies, etc for that purpose.

1. Snag on rock
2. Tippet breaks or fly dislodges - leader flies back into brush or at best causing a tangle
3. Retie
4. repeat.
5. Yaaaaa

thought the formula had been changed?

i saw suffix yellow and orange in a discount store recently, but they were heavier test.

is new stren gold or some other 4-6# test quality "sighter?" if so, i'd buy a spool to twist into leaders.

I twist leaders from 6# gold.

Perhaps they changed formula. I don't know, as I don't rely on the high vis properties too much. It's just another variable in the long list.

The best sighter for me is strike putty worked into a furl. Not necessarily sexy, and certainly not marketable, but it works well - and it's afish certified, which is all I need to know.

It sure is nice to have a strike detection aid that actually assists in casting, rather than hindering it.
