Airlock Strike Indicators

Airlock Strike Indicators


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.


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.

1/2″ is for stealthy use and small nymphs or beads, 3/4″ is perfect for 6-10mm beads, where the 1″ is best for 10mm and up.
