Foundation of my euro nymphing leader
After intense euro nymphing for the past 18 months (well over 100 outings) I have greatly simplified my leader. I now use about 15-18 feet of 8lb green Amnesia, super glue spliced to my Cortland level braid core fly line, followed by 4-6 ft 3x two color sighter terminating with a small tippet ring. To this I add 6-8 ft of 5x Stroft GTM as tippet. On my local river, the Lower Yuba, this has proven to be very effective, and the Amnesia makes it super easy to see my line in any light.
