Thanks guys, I have to try some stuff if I can get out this weekend sometime. Btw, the only reason I got them was because they were in the cabelas bargain cave. You wouldn’t catch me spending 12 bucks on a piece of fishing line haha.


Man after my own heart! Like Penn Kev said, they have their purpose in limited situations. I personally like to grease a sighter where I have left the pigtails hanging, but it could be fun to try a new toy, especially from the bargain cave.

You can tie tippet rings on both sides of the coil. That’s easiest. You can make you on coiled indi but the sighter material is best. It holds coils the best, and the thickest material is best.

I agree except for the last part. You don't want to get too crazy with how thick of sighter material you use. The coils should spread apart at the slightest disturbance to your fly. I probably wouldn't use anything rated higher than 12lb test.

I’ve made coiled sighters with smaller diameter mono. Problem is it loses its memory very quickly. That system was designed to present small nymphs at distance to spooky fish.
