Troutbitten Hi-Viz Red Standard Mono Rig


Out of stock


A Hi-Viz Red version of the Standard. The Troutbitten Standard Mono Rig is an extremely versatile tool for the tight line angler. It is the base of a hybrid fly fishing system, built for fishing tight line and euro nymphing styles, indicator styles, dry dropper, streamers of all sizes, wet flies and even dry flies.

This is the leader I’ve written about extensively on Troutbitten.

And here’s an article about the Hi-Viz Red, specifically.

  • Troutbitten Standard Sighter (with Backing Barrel) is built in.
  • Includes a high quality, black, 1.5 mm tippet ring at the end of the Standard Sighter.
  • Leader concludes at the end of the sighter. Angler adds appropriate length of tippet.
  • Includes two feet of 1X Bi-Color. Add this to extend the sighter for a longer sagless reach with lighter flies.
  • Comes on a three-inch plastic spool, perfect for storing long leaders.
  • Includes three rigging foams, for swapping and storing tippet sections: two nymphs, a pair of streamers, dry dropper, etc. (Rigging foam colors may vary.)

Also Offered: All three Troutbitten Mono Rigs are available as a full kit — found HERE. (Not Hi-Viz Red)

The Meat Eater Minority — Streamer Fishing Myth v Truth

The other day, I came across a streamer article with the following headline: “There are few fish that won’t crush a well-presented streamer.” That's absolute nonsense. Rarely does a population of trout fall all over themselves to eat a streamer, no matter how well...

Modern Nymphing Elevated — More of What’s Possible with a Mono Rig

Devin Olsen and Lance Egan have released Modern Nymphing Elevated. It’s a follow up to their excellent video from a short while back, Modern Nymphing. The subtitle for the latest video is “Beyond the Basics," and that’s a good way to look at it. Elevated jumps right...

Fly Fishing Tip — Limit the line in and on the water

Whatever line touches the river will drag. Start there. Assume it as reality. The currents take your leader, pushing and pulling it downstream. This wouldn't be so bad if the current could be even all the way across, from bank to bank. But it isn’t. It never is. Even...

Ask an Expert | For Euro Nymphing or the Mono Rig, what leader material do you like for the butt section?

Fly fishers are a funny bunch. We ask questions, get answers, then go off and do our own thing anyway. Truth be told, some of the best innovations come from our unique brand of intemperate independence. We’re at our best when we modify ideas and build on the creations...

Fly Fishing Strategies: No Limits — Fish every type of weight available

Do you use weighted flies or split shot? It’s a common question with a flawed premise. Why choose? Why limit yourself to one or the other? And why use only one at a time? Unless you’re a dry-fly-only angler, you need weight to get flies under the surface and down to...

Let’s Stop Kidding Ourselves — The Bead on a Hook Challenge

Beads are the best. We can summon endless theories for why, but trout love eating bright, metal beads. Gold, copper or silver, even painted and faceted beads have made their way into our fly boxes. No doubt there’s a time for flies without bead heads, but oh my,...
