Fly Fishing Indicator / Tippet Protector by Cutthroat Leaders

We at at Cutthroat Leaders now offer these amazing Indicator / Tippet Protectors.
If you have ever lost a fish  because of using light tippets, you know the issue of fishing
small tippets.  Sometimes you need light tippets to fool that fish, but you are
hesitant that the fish will snap the light tippet.  Worry no more.

These Tippet protectors float high and act as a sighter / indicator.  But when  pulled,
they stretch up to 5X their original 6: length.  They are also very strong.

Check them out.  stretch-indicator/ tippet-protector

Looped Leader System for Spring Creek Fisheries

Many guys love throwing long leaders when fishing educated / spooky trout.  
One major issue with using such a long leader is micro currents that are not 
known or seen by the fisher.   This leader has three "Chain-Link Style" 
connections which which also step down in tippet size.  Think of it as a 
Hand Tied Leader with joints.  These joints "chain-link loops", create a 
leader that drifts through multiple micro currents that never cause drag 
on the fly.  The leader sections can move freely without in-acting force "drag" 
on the fly.
The end of the leader is 3x tippet.  Meaning, the fly fisher should use 4x, 5x, 6x 
attached to the micro loop on the tippet end. The butt section does not have a loop...  
If loop is desired, please request in comments area at checkout.
I have been playing / fishing with this leader system recently...  It has been very productive.
3.6 Meter (12'-0") plus your tippet....  15'-16' leader system
2.4 Meter (8'-6") plus your tippet....  10'-12' leader system

Our Looped Leader uses a chain-link style connection rather than a standard
loop to loop knot.  The chain-link connection allows the leader to move with the
micro currents without putting pressure "drag" on the fly.

So we have recently created a few videos explaining various details regarding Cutthroat Leaders.

The first one we did is showing the basic application of our
"Cutthroat Otter Butter Leader Floatant".  It may seem basic for seasoned furled leader users, but for many, the application of the leader floatant needs some explanation.  See video below.  How to apply Floatant to a Cutthroat Furled Leader.

Winter fishing to spooky fish...

Winter fishing comes with many obstacles.  Shallow water, spooky fish, stiff leaders and cold fingers.

We cannot help you with the cold fingers, or the fact that fish tend to become slightly more nervous with low  / slow moving water.  But, we can help you with gently presenting a fly to spooky fish as well as eliminating the stiff  and kink filled leaders you currently use.

Our Hi-Vis Nymph leader has quickly become known across the fly fishing community as a truly impressive leader system for small flies, shallow waters and educated trout.

Give us look, you will not be disappointed.

Other winter fishing tips:

Slow down....  Fishes metabolism slows down significantly when the temps drop.  This means, they slow down themselves.   They will not move long distances to eat your bug.  Put your fly where you think this fish actually are.

Subtle strikes:  The strike in winter will not often be the jumping leaping fast hits you get in the warmer months.  Be ready, as often times, many strikes go un-noticed because the strike is so soft / gentle.

Mostly Nymphs:  Sure, you can get lucky and catch a BWO hatch or a small top water midge flurry...  But more often than not, winter fishing is a subsurface game.  Keep your flies small, fished close to the bottom and do not expect BIG aggressive takes.

Get out and enjoy a day on the water, most likely, you will be all alone...
Happy Fishing.
