High water flows on the White River and Norfork Tailwater can be daunting for newcomers, but offers a better shot at our trophy quality trout.
Dally’s guide Gabe Levin continues out The Good Oil presents How to video series with a simple high water nymphing leader.
This leader setup gets get your flies down to where the fish are feeding fast, faster than standard tapered leaders (they do give you a way of reusing the butt sections on old leaders). This leader is long, heavy and gives you a headstart on catching.
You can use this nymphing a “spaghetti and meatballs” setup in summer or perhaps shad kill in high flows
and pick up
RIO Flouroflex Plus Tippet 3x and 4x for the tippet and fly connections
And now short cut the process and have an easily adjustable, long lasting butt section with our awesome Neva Quit Butts _ the reuseable indicator/butt section platform for all your nymphing on the White River. The Neva Quits are built on the leader/midsection principles you see demonstrated in the above video, with a tippet ring on the terminal end. Tie say 5′ of 3x or 4x then tippet and flies and you have a ready to roll rig
