Why use strike indicators?

I don’t use strike indicators usually because I feel like it’s too much of a hassle to set it all up. And I’m not the most prepared one when I’m packing for a fishing trip, so usually I don’t have any strike indicators stoked with me.

But here is a tip that will make setting strike indicators for fly fishing nymphs very easy.

Fly fishing nymphs is effective because you can serve your fly right in front of the fish. And strike indicators help to see when the fish take your fly.

But how to fly fish, if you didn’t happen to buy proper strike indicators before you’re outdoors by the river?
My dad gave me this tip on one of our fishing trips.
You can tie a big dry fly like Pupu Tupuna -perho (you see it on the video) to your leader instead of strike indicator. Then tie another 20 cm of tippet and use a nymph as a second fly.

A bonus tip!

Next time setting up nymphing technique is even easier, if you cut the whole rig off, roll it and store it in your fly box for next time.

This works for lazy angler like me.
