Unibobber

Has anyone used these tiny little bobbers in their fly patterns? I bought some to play around. Going to see how they look on some tan caddis patterns. I am not into dry flies that much, but who doesn't like to see top water in any kind of fishing!

But I like the idea of using droppers. Last year I used a tiny #22 red midge under a tan caddis. It was cool watching that caddis just disappear when the trout would take the midge.

Re: Unibobber

I don't know what you're referring to with "tiny little bobbers in the fly pattern".

I also often use tandems with a dry ontop then have a nymph about 16"s or so tied off the bend of the dryfly.

If i'm just nymphing i really got into Using "thingamabobbers". They work really well.

Re: Unibobber

I like to use a piece of florescent floating line on my leader when nymphing. I have a long needle that i use to thread the tapered leader into it - scientific anglers 7wt floating DT donated a spool of line to me in a kit...i could not cast that line to save my life for some reason so i hacked off a few 1" pieces to use JUST for this purpose. On a 8' tapered leader, it helps me adjust my depth a little and keeps my flies or bait riding the bottom with little resistance. I really like this setup with (ghasp...) wax worms on a #18 egg hook with a teeny split shot 8" up from the worm, and the floater at about 2-4 feet. it casts okay, even roll casts well with the 7wt. This is also the same setup I use with my 5' UL spinner with 2-4lb test.

Re: Unibobber

Sorry guys! Its fairly new, I believe they are from the same makers of the Thingamabobboer. Here is another site that shows what I am talking about.

http://www.cabelas.com/line-dressing...nibobber.shtml

They are smaller than the regular Thingamabobber. When tied, they will be on the very top of the fly. Visible for the angler, so when a dropper fly is use. It becomes the strike indicator. Since fly fishing, I just couldn't tell you how many times I have had a fish hit the Thingamabobber. Once I get something tied Ill post it!

I know they work awesome! But I got tired of them kinking my leaders all the time. My buddy uses a round tooth pick and pegs them, no more kinks! Since using a tooth pick to peg the Thingamabobber I been using my leaders a lot longer.
