In long or short line nymphing (e.g., French Nymphing ‘or Czech Nymphing) super long and extra-fine monofilament leaders are used to absorb shock load with the stretchable material. They are much more superior to use in the Euro nymphing techniques than fluorocarbon leaders. The main goal is to get a nearly direct connection to the nymph - without dragging it through the current. Even the most delicate takes can be recognized, due to these specialty leaders with minimal stretch and because lightweight rods with sensitive tips (#2 - #4 with a length of 10ft. - 11ft.). In contrast to a lot of other nymphing techniques, the take is no longer felt, but can actually be seen on the in-line indicators.
Therefore no ordinary, swimming strike indicators are used. Instead, a Hi-Visibility sighter’ is placed in-between the tapered leader and the level line tippet. This sighter helps to follow the drift and indicates if there is too much slack or too much tension in the system and visually detects the strike with no resistance from a bobber or the angler. When done correctly, the result is an extraordinary high strike detection.
These extra-long mono tapered leaders are a must-have for any fly fisherman, excel when used with Euro nymphing techniques and dry fly fishing, and are great all-around leaders.
