Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought these sooner. Any fly fisher is keen on equipment. Thingamabobbers are very effective in most situations. But, the Jam Stop means I don’t have to check and recheck the height of my strike indicators. That means my rig spends more time in the trouts feeding zone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buoyant A bit too buoyant for using as a bung for small nymphs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to attach and use I used to fish with stick-on strike indicators but have switched to the Jam-Stop Thingamabobbers for most of my nymph fishing. These are no-mess, easy to attach, and easy to spot on the water. The smallest size is perfect for small trout streams with shallow water. Typically, I don't use the jam-stop, but fold, then thread my leader through the opening at the top of the indicator and wrap the resulting loop around the indicator body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile indicator Can be used with or without stopper feature. It is more adjustable using the stopper, running the leader straight through the opening first. Good visible colors.
