|Don’t let the somewhat less than sophisticated name fool you, the Thingamabobber will improve your nymph fishing more than you ever thought a strike indicator could. This unique line of sensitive balloon-style strike indicators, or balloon-dicators as they are known amongst fly fishing guides, is absolutely the best thing to happen to nymph fishing since the invention of the bead-headed nymph or non-toxic shot.
With 4 sizes and multiple colors, even glow-in-the-dark, there is a Thingamabobber to cover every nymph fishing situation you might encounter.
Larger sizes are perfect for maximum visibility and suspending big heavy bugs and lots of weight in deep swift currents. The smaller sizes won’t plop too hard on the surface and won’t scare fish. Medium sizes are great all-around indicators for multiple nymph fishing applications.
Unlike actual balloons that tend to come off of the line and deflate when fish are hooked, and also litter the stream banks, the Thingamabobber stays buoyant and never deflates in cold water or over-inflates in the sun.
The Thingamabobber is easily affixed to the line through the use of a quick loop to loop type connection and it can be shifted up and down the leader with ease for fine-tuning your nymph presentation. The Thingamabobber never absorbs water, won’t pick up dirt and weeds, and won’t get heavy like a yarn indicator. Because Thingamabobbers are made from a smooth, durable, yet flexible material they won’t break when bouncing off rocks. Now you can use the same indicators literally for years without having to replace them.
Try a Thingamabobber on your next fishing trip, you will be impressed!
