Umpqua Red Hot Power Taper - Tapered Leader 3X 8.5lb

The Red Hot Power Taper is probably one of the neatest fly fishing accessories we have seen. This unique product is a single tapered leader which has 3 feet of milky white indicator, 2 feet of Neon Red inidcator and 5 feet of clear tapered leader, there is no other product in the market like this!. The minute we saw this in EFFTEX at the European Fly Fishing Tackle Exhibition we knew that fly fishermen would love the Umpqua Red Hot Power Taper - Tapered Leader 3X 8.5lb. This unique tapered leader acts like a rifle sight pointing to your dry flies or alternatively acts as a stunning bite indicator for nymphing or even a depth guage for czech nymphing or as it is called in America "High Sticking".

The 10 foot leader is the only one on the market to feature a vivid Neon Red section integrated into the taper. The first 36" of butt section is a matte-milky colour for maximum contrast. The next 24" of the butt is Hi Vis Neon Red Indicator section. When we used these we loved them, it made bite indication so easy in all different light conditions. These two colours combine to offer the highest visual contract and vibrancy of any indicator leader, and bright visual separation between butt and tippet sections. If you require a longer leader then we have experimented with a thick monofilament extending the butt to 15 feet and using Stroft on the tippet on both lakes and rivers and both worked perfectly extending th eusage of this unique product even further.

The material of the red hot power taper is an extruded co-polymer nylon leader. Nylon is more buoyant than Fluorocarbon and should by nature float out of the package. A light layer of grease may be applied but should not be necessary. The buoyant characteristics may differ depending on the turbulent nature of any particular river or stream.

  • For czech nymphing or high sticking depth control is simple using the white and red sections as a depth guage. It helps keep the fly at the correct depth and vary the depths and additionally acts as a superb indicator.
  • Stunning visual indicator for following leader or fly which nymphing or dry fly fishing. Even when the fly passes through different areas of light on the water you can see where the fly is quickly using the indicator to point direction
  • The Red Hot like a rifle or "gun sight" for tracking a fly in slow or stillwaters.

Lots of line memory

Line had a lot of memory when using it, even after trying to straighten it out and fishing with for a day. Was not good to see the leader all bunched up leading up to your fly, its likely going to spook everything around.

Essential fly service was great though.

I was surprised not to be able to identify what the tippet material is made of and hence don't know what to use for an extension.
Can you please clarify
