    Airlock Strike Inicators

    Quit sacrificing your tapered leaders to the "bobber gods." The Air-Lock Strike Indicator is ultra buoyant, super visible, durable, easy to adjust, and won't render the butt section of your leader a kinky mess.

    Air-lock strike indicators accommodate leader and tippet material of widely varying diameters. Use them on everything from 25 pound butt section material to 6x tippet. Thanks to the o-ring in the cap design, even thin diameter tippets don't slide through once the cap is locked down. Adjusting the position of the indicator on your leader is as easy as twisting the cap a half turn, sliding the indicator, and locking it back down. Once the indicator is removed, the leader emerges unscathed.

    Air Lock strike indicators are manufactured by a little company called Field Systems Research based in Portland, Oregon. The two owners met on the banks of the Deschutes River in 1993, and have been fishing buddies ever since. Shortly after the acquaintance was made, they began grumbling to each other about how frustrating strike indicators were. More specifically-how poorly they attach to a leader. The objective was clear...find a better way to attach an indicator to the leader.


    Frank built the first prototype out of a toothpaste tube and it's cap. It worked! The tube could be casted great distances without slippage! Even better, there was no damage to the leader and it was easy to adjust. Immediately, John began tuning the design, fashioning working prototypes, and testing the "you-know-what" out of them. The end result: an indicator that stays in place, is easy to adjust, won't kink or damage your leader.

    I have used the New Zealand indicator yarn for awhile and ran out and my buddy had some of these air lock indicators. Very easy to use and adjust depth. Very light on the water when it lands and biodegradable....always a good thing. I will use them when double-nymphing! Great product.

    I have been using these air lock bite indicators on my 12' hand pole to catch small needlefish for bait. These needlefish are usually in the whitewash and will mouth your bait and swim around undetected. This float is so light and will move when the fish are mouthing your bait which enables me to detect the strike. I also like the fact that the float will not move once you screw it down on your line and likewise, easily adjustable if you want to change the depth of your bait.
