    Details

    Since the fish aren't taking the least bit interest in your dry setup, switch out to a nymph rig and tie on a Thingamabobber so you know when a fish strikes. This three-pack of Thingamabobbers are high floating indicators that never need floatant or dry shake to stay on top of the surface.

    Hi, bobber's, they always make me laugh when I put them on but so essential for nymphing, the medium will do you well and they work as intended.

    Catch more fish!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are great for sight nymphing , having the indicator really helps bubble goes down you set the hook and BAMM fish on! Also great for someone who is new to fly-fishing and getting the basics down.

    Thingamabobbers are the gold standard for indicators. So simple, so silly, so effective. No more drying or dressing thread indicators anymore. My only problem is that I lose them in my tackle bag or they roll away and force me to buy new ones. The mediums are the standard and probably perfect size, I've had strikes on the smalls, and only occasionally use the larges when I am fishing with heavy nymphing rigs in bigger water and have several split shots of BBs to get down to depth.

    Perfect!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are an absolute must when nymphing! They float extremely well and they're super easy to use. They do cause a little more commotion than the yarn indicators, but they're so easy to see it makes it worth it. Simple add on that makes nymph fishing so much easier.

    A Must Have

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These Thingamabobber strike indicators are so great. They float so well and are super easy to see. I use mainly the Medium size because I find it to be the perfect all around size for mostly all creeks, streams, and rivers. If your fishing some really small mountain waters though you may want to go with the small (or none at all), and if you're getting into some really big waters you may want to go with the large. Overall though, these Thingamabobber's are so great and effective. I always used to use the yarn indicators because they are a little more stealthy when your dealing with some easily spooked fish, however once I found these I could not go back to the yarn ones. You may spook a few fish here and there with it, but being able to see it perfectly and it keeping your line off the bottom with ease are both a huge advantage to them in my eyes. I do not leave home to head to the stream without them!

    Nymphing sucks, sometimes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Nymphing is definitely my least favorite manner of fishing, but is sometimes a necessity or very productive. I like these because they can help you set the exact depth you want for your nymph rig.

    Not really for me.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    To be honest I'm not much for indicators, but they are very useful in some situations. My friend was using these on his nymph rig and I figured I'd give them a go. Firstly I bought the on sale One Color, L variant. I don't recommend this as the one color I received was glow in the dark, which during the day, as the color is a pale greenish, is not the easiest to see. The large are also a bit too bulky for my taste.

    Anyway the pros of this indicator are as follows:

    Easy to apply
    Easily adjusted
    Visible (When you have the right colors)
    Drifts well

    Cons:

    Prone to spooking fish occasionally
    Another thing on your line to possibly tangle
    Expensive (Which is why I bought the ones on sale)

    All-in-all these are a good indicator in the right conditions, but nothing special overall. I think they come down to a personal preference.
