Stroft Color is an ideal nylon to tie your own nymphing leaders! Due to its slight stretching nature, it can perfectly be combined with thin tippets - without fearing the loss of a big fish during the fight. The biggest advantage of the fluo yellow-colored monofilament lies in its high visibility. The black version is suitable for bright, sunny days, light backgrounds and crystal clear waters (e.g. in Austria or Slovenia). Especially modern nymphing techniques (e.g. 'French Nymphing') rely on recognizing the most subtle takes and impulse on the leader - even in bad light conditions. Stroft Color can easily be seen anytime, anywhere thanks to its high contrast.
You can either use the leader material to tie a whole nymph leader with three pieces of different diameters or you combine a shorter piece (1m 0.25mm) with your ordinary nymph leader and sighter. The most simple nymph leader is a non-tapered leader of 0.25mm Stroft Color. Whatever your favorite solution is: a blood knot is the best way to knot the different parts (see video below).
Example Euro-Nymph-Leader: 225cm (0.45mm Stroft Color) + 150cm (0.35mm Stroft Color) + 75 cm (0.25mm Stroft Color) + Sighter + 150cm bis 200cm Tippet
