Indicators and Shot Weights

Split shots are an easy way to add some weight on the leader. We recommend using only non-toxic lead free Dinsmore's split shots which are also available under Daiwa's brand. Indicators are available in many different models from traditional oval or round shaped foam or plastic indicators to New Zealand style wool strike indicators. In modern nymph fishing, french nymphing for example, the indicator is usually part of the leader, a short piece of bright coloured monofilament line or braided material.
