Can't find info on a strike indicator/bobber please help. With follow up Q?
 
Ok I have had enough of looking on the net. Please help me out guys. I am looking into trying nymph fishing on some trout lakes I like to visit. Now I got this idea from a fishing show on WFN ( yeah Iím THAT guy who tries stuff he sees the experts do ). Be that as it may, here is what Iím looking for.

They used a strike indicator more like a bobber actually, that would detach itself upon a fish striking the fly. Then the bobber/indicator slides down your line as you reel the fish in and comes to rest upon your pinch on weight. ONLY thing is I cannot find these in any of the fishing equipment shops I have been in nor can I find the right wording online.

Thanks

Sounds like a slip bobber. you can get them anywhere. Easy to use.

They are called Plumbobbers. You can find them at Plumbobber.com. I got some of them in Kremmling last year and they work great.

Or-Google "slip-strike indicators"- gives you all the info you need to know. Don't know where they are carried locally.

Shoe on this board makes the plumbobbers, shoot him a PM. Not sure, but I think Charlies Fly Shop carries them and you can order them from FlyCrafters.

Rock on!! thanks guys.......now,how about a follow up question ;D...... what are the 2 go-to nymphs you would advise me to carry? Remember I'm lake fishing these not flinging them in the stream/river. I was going to try a zebra in a couple diff colors and a stonefly. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for the help!

A Zebra is a pretty good choice Size 10-18 olive, black or red...I don't know about the stone fly though, not to say a fish wouldn't eat them but, they're not found in lakes...I'd go with an olive hares ear type fly in a size 14. It's a very generic suggestive pattern that could imitate almost anything that lives in a lake.
