One of the best indicators -
By: MatFly from Elevenmile Canyon, Co
Been using these last few years and found they will slip, but now wrap leader around indicator twice and no more slippage. Takes a little longer to move or remove, but I think worth it as it now stays put. Very sensitive to takes and rides high and in sight.

These are good value for money, easy to attach/move, highly visible and very sensitive. By far the best indicators currently available

I bought this as a nymphing aid on chalkstream, allowing me to see the line but also regulate the depth of the nymph in the water. First thing to say is that the simple pass-the-loop-through-the-eye and over the body of the bobber isn't sufficient to prevent it slipping down the tippet and up against the fly. Some more sophisticated knotwork is needed, or blocking the hole once the line is in. Note that further up the range is a bobber which has a plastic wedge that does this - a recognition that the simple thingumabobber has a problem? So - either buy the more advanced product or put a large dry fly where the bobber is and increase your chances of a take?

This pack of Thingamabobbers arrived as scheduled. This was my first Orvis on line purchase and it will not be my last. Honestly , I have not had a chance to try thingamombobbers out but they look like they will do fine. I saw a fellow fisherman using these and was impressed by the performance he was experiencing as far as howhigh they rode in the current as opposed to my yarn type indicators.

I started using these two years ago when we had high water in the Sierra far into the season. It is a great indicator for fast water, and I could use the smaller size when using my ultralight rods with small nymphs. The only problem is that they don't stay put on the line. The tend to slide down a bit. The manufacturer must of figured this out. Now they make a Jam Stop version. I plan on picking some up. I'm confident the new version will work quite well.

Overall great product. It's a little heavier and what I normally use (foam float), but is nice to be able to install and take off without cutting all your terminal tackle off.

Best indicator out there. Very sensitive, floats high, light, and easy to cast.
