Westwater Thingamabobbers - 5 Pack
Ratings & Reviews
My primary indicator
My main indicator when nymphing. I have these in 1", 3/4" and 1/2". Which one I use is dependent on the rig. Floats great, but can twist and get hung up on the line if not careful with your roll casts. Mine came with the stopper attached, I just cut that off and use normally. Floats better than yarn indicators and don't have to retreat.
Thingamabobber indicators are the most versatile and popular strike indicators on the water. Most guides install them on their client nymph rigs and never take them off. I think yarn indicators and floating files are a bit more sensitive, but they ice up when it's cold and twist a lot if it's windy. The Thingamabobers with stopper pegs are a good idea for quick adjustments and do help prevent curls from forming in your leader. That said, I usually cut the pegs off because my average casting skills tangle around or catch on the peg a lot.
