Discover Our Selection of Fly Fishing Strike Indicators
Fly fishing strike indicators, although simple in concept, can be a game changer for anglers. For those of you new to angling, a fly fishing strike indicator is quite simply a bobber. Small, simple, yet indispensable for many anglers, fly fishing strike indicators are typically used when nymphing to let the angler see and feel even the subtlest of strikes at their fly!
Some strikes are obvious no-brainers. They come in aggressively with a hard and fast strike. Others are very slow and subtle. It's these slow and subtle strikes that happen most frequently, which is why it's important that they aren’t missed!

Choosing the Best Fly Fishing Strike Indicators
When it comes to choosing the best fly fishing indicator, there are many options in a variety of colours, sizes, shapes, and materials.
In terms of size, it’s important that your strike indicator is large enough to float while supporting the weight of your nymphing rig. However, you don’t want to go too big! The goal is for around ½ to ⅓ of your indicator to sit below the surface of the water.
When it comes to materials and shapes, some float better than others! And, there are some materials that benefit from looking more natural. For example, wool or yarn is the most natural looking and performs well in calm water, while spherical foam indicators float high on the surface making them ideal for rugged conditions.
