Floating Stillwater Rigs

Stillwater anglers love visuals. If you’re casting flies or watching an indicator, there’s nothing like seeing a take in real-time. Match the hatch or make your own, with rigs to set you up for surface success.

The Waiting Game

Beneath the serene surface of a lake is a world teeming with life. The trick to understanding what's happening down there so you can catch fish lies in analysis. Casting distance, water depth, fly weight, retrieve speed, and a whole lot of patience will reward an angler with the wonders of lake fishing.

Elite Stillwater Floater

The Elite Stillwater Floater is designed to cast long leaders, multi-fly setups, and turnover indicator rigs. It starts with our low-stretch ConnectCore Plus providing sensitivity and faster reaction time when setting the hook. Equipped with Slickcast for durability and a hang marker for judging when to stop the retrieve and fish the hang.

Indicator Leader & Fluoroflex Strong Tippet

Our Indicator leader is designed specifically for fishing nymphs. The butt section allows for the efficient casting of indicators. The level 7ft tip section allows flies to sink quickly. This is ideal for chironomids or crunchers on lakes. Add some Fluoroflex for its invisible properties and strength.


In stillwater, chironomids, damsels, and mayflies are the main meal for trout. Fishing a mix of these under an indicator will help you key in on what the fish are eating. With several different weight options, you can adjust your depth to hone in on the strike zone. A few chromies, buggers, and damsels will have you hooked up in no time.

High On Dries

The fish are rising, and so is your heart rate as you spy a pod of healthy eaters about to swim past you. Delivering a bug to a feeding fish on a lake means distance, stealth, and accuracy. This rig will help you deliver that fly right in front of the school. All you have to do is set the hook and hold on!

Elite RIO Gold

The Elite RIO Gold has a taper design that gives incredible loop stability at distance and a front taper that delivers the perfect presentation of flies between sizes #2 and #22. With a long head and back taper, this line is an excellent all-around fly line on lakes when long casts and complete line control are required.

Powerflex Leader & Tippet

Powerflex Trout leaders feature a butt section that provides unsurpassed turnover for wind penetration—a must-have for fishing lakes. Add a small amount of stretch, so you don't blow the hook set by pulling the fly out too soon. Finish with Powerflex for your desired length. These combined create the ideal dry fly system for lakes.


Picture this—boat-side, perfect dry fly rig in hand, and a pod of boiling risers just a 20ft cast away. This is not the time to wonder if you've got the right the fly. We take the guesswork out with perfectly picked dry flies for stillwater.
