I don't do a lot on nymphing (I prefer dries or woolly buggers), but I thought I'd try it out again this weekend. Here's the setup I tried that I thought I'd pass on. If you don't mind using a strike indicator, read on - if you think that's not flyfishing - then you better turn back now... Tapered leader (about 5 or 6 ft) with a loop on the end For tippet - about 3 ft of Maxum UG (need to try floro..) with a loop to join to the leader Strike indicator = small steelhead 'bobber' (like drift fishers use with yarn...) you can use it as is (use a tooth pick to hold it in place) or run your leader through it about 10 inches, then come back down through it leaving a loop. In the loop, place an inch or 2 of yarn. Pull the line tight. Add your tippet to the end of the leader. This lets your fly hang at more of a 90 degree angle. And to adjust your depth, you can just tug on the yarn and easily adjust the loop to you have longer or shorter leader from 'bobber' to fly. or, if you like a true 90 degree angle from leader to fly..... Drill a small hole in the steely bobber perpendicular to the original hole. Run the leader (with loop already tied) through the original hole. If you have trouble getting the loop throught the hole, just take some tippet material, run it throuth the hole firsth, then run it through your leader loop, then back through the hole. Pull the leader loop back through using the tippet material as a guide... Now you have a 'bobber' on your leader with a loop sticking out the other side. Take your pre-looped tippet and connect the leader and tippet 'loop to loop'. Now run the end of the tippet through the drilled hole so that it comes out perpendicular to the leader. Pull snug and either let the knots from the loops hold the 'bobber' in place, or use a tooth pic. This makes a perfect 90 degree nymphing system with a nice strike indicator. I'm going to try this for dead drfting small flies summer steelhead ana fall salmon as well. I know, it may sound more like float and jig fishing than true fly fishing, but it works well, and may be worth trying... Also, I did this with a hairs ear nymph and a BH prince as a dropper. Worked great!
