Thanks again for the help!

The only benefit I see to the slip strike indicator is it allows you to strip more line in after hooking up to make landing fish easier. Not many instances when my leader is too long it makes landing fish difficult, but I can see how they have their time and place. Never heard of them before.

Thanks for the info on types of flies to carry.....scuds were the next thing I was going to type

@Riplip- that is precisely what I'm after. If I'm dead drifting from my boat or just letting the nymphs hang out near the bottom from my boat in say 12 feet of water, I would have to stop reeling/stripping line and remove said bobber giving mr. trout too much free time/slack.

@Tangler, but what style/color of Chironomids would you suggest?

Thanks again for the feedback guys. I knew I should have just posted the question on here long ago

Just bought 4 of the slipbobbers. I can think of some stillwater that's going to pick up soon where they are going to work great!

Shoe's Plumb Bobbers work great.

Imagine being in a belly boat, fishing 14' down, and trying to land a fish without a long landing net. The releasing bobber makes it simple, b/c you can retrieve the fish all the way in.

You can get them at Jax in Fort Collins by the way, as well at FeatherCraft

Albow's links are stellar. I've seen patterns of every different style/color work.
