    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.

    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.

    Great indicator!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love these indicators. They float really well and don't slide around on your leader. I like the small .5 inch size for small streams and the medium .75 inch size for large rivers and heavier rigs. They do cast a little goofy, but what can you expect. My only problem with these is how they kink your leader. If you want to avoid that, try the airlocker indicators. They screw onto your leader and don't kink it at all. Still love these indicators though!

    These are all you need when throwing a bounce rig or dropper setup. Please be advised, the ones we have in stock are glow in the dark! That means, they will arrive clear and not in multiple colorways. They still are awesome and do the job. I use the medium for everything from mellow runs to more aggressive water.

    I love these strike indicators.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These strike indicators are so easy to put on your line. For a beginner I do not suggest white. Do with orange or something that you can see really well. I'd also suggest a smaller size for small rivers.

    Great Indicator

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Easily attach to your tippet and throw some droppers. They float high and are clear to appear as bubbles on the waters surface. Very responsive! I am excited to see them glow in the dark.

    Tried and True

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been using these for a while now. Best indicators I've used. Can easily see the slightest strike and false strikes, (which is probably more my own problem). I would suggest larger than the small though for faster bigger rivers.

    stealthy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Like Chris Jenney said, these are only coming in a clear... but are they just clear? Nope. They are actually glow in the dark! Hold them up to your headlamp at night for a minute and then they will glow green.



    I also like them because they really are a little more stealthy then those bright indicators. Very sensitive and responsive as well.

    Clear

      I love these indicators. They are sensitive and really detect a strike. the picture above shows multiple colors, please be aware that these are only shipping in CLEAR right now. I personally love the clear as they seem to spook the fish less.
