Our favorite strike indicator is back and better than ever! Air Locks are now biodegradable and redesigned so they won’t leak or fill up with water. Air Lock’s feature a super simple design that will not crimp your leader when you move it up and down depending on depth.
Airlock Strike Indicators
This strike indicator has quickly become a fan favorite. It is easily adjustable, drifts high, and mends without struggle. This new version of the Airlock is solid so it can’t fill with water plus it is biodegradable.
- Not to be confused with “water soluble:” Air-Lock Biodegradable Strike Indicators will not dissolve or be compromised in any way during normal use.
- Biodegrading happens when the material is left in the elements: mud, water, mulch, compost, etc. over a long period of time.
Packs come with 3 indicators, plus two extra caps each. Also see our custom 3-packs of All White indicators. A perfect option if you are having issues with fish “eating” your indicator instead of your fly.
