Thingamabobber Strike Indicators

$2.45 - $5.45

Thingamabobber Strike Indicators

Thingamabobber Strike Indicators feature trapped air technology so the indicator rides high on the water. These lightweight round indicators are very easy to cast. The line guides are gentle on light leaders and are easy to attach and adjust for water depth. Thingamabobbers stay in place on your line and never sink and don't need additional floatant to stay afloat.

We carry Thingamabobber Strike Indicators in four sizes.
  • The Small 1/2" diameter indicators come in a muticolor 5 pack and are great for small flies and micro jigs.
  • The Medium 3/4" diameter indicators come in a muticolor 5 pack and are great for smaller flies, jigs and baits.
  • The Large 1" diameter indicators come in a multicolor 4 pack and are perfect for medium sizes flies, jigs and baits.
  • The X-Large 1 1/4" diameter indicators come in a muticolor 2 pack and are great for medium to large flies, jigs and baits.

About Me:
Ideal indicator for steelhead

This is a trouble free indicator. Would like to see a marker of some sort at the top of the indicator that would help show the position of the fly. I once had a yarn indicator with a lightweight snap that would allow you to change to a different size indicator without cutting the line. This would also be a useful addition.


Pros: Trouble free--don't need floatant.

Cons: tapered peg loosens too easy

Best Uses: Any time you need extra weight

Thingamabobber = Awesome
Reviewed:


Verified
Buyer
Rochester, NY

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I am an avid fly fisher but have never understood how others can detect subtle strikes from trout without an indicator. However, the ones I have used in the past were difficult to use, generally either too big making it difficult to cast, or too small and not able to support minimal weight. The Thingamabobber is easy to roll cast, even in windy conditions, stays afloat, even in a real fast current and the result was the first time I used it, I caught a 12lb steelhead in fast moving water that I used to avoid. I've since caught 2 more Steelies and 4 large brown trout and I've only been using the Thingamabobber for a week. Awesome!

Pros: Easy To Handle, Strong, Good For Variety Of Fish

Cons: none

Best Uses: Fly fishing, Fresh Water

The best strike indicators
Reviewed:

Buyer

About Me:
Professional
Thingamabobers are simply the best strike indicators available. They go "on" and "off" the easiest. They don't get caught up in your fly line if you mess up your loop. They're virtually indistructible. And the white colored ones look just like a piece of foam floating on the water. They're great. I'm a pro not affiliated with this company and I HIGHLY recommend them.

Pros: Easy To Handle, Easy To Store, Tangle free

Cons: none

Best Uses: Fly fishing

I have lost many strike indicators that used the pegged system and get frustrated with time consuming indicators that you must put on put on prior to the fly and weights. The thingamobber may be put on at any time and easily adjusted to the water depth.

Pros: Stays on the line, Easy To Store, Easy To Handle

Cons: none
