I'll second the strike indicators that flyman01 is talking about. Great for many applications involving light to medium weight nymphs. For deeper nymph rigs with lots of weight, I like either Thingamabobbers or a good yarn indicator with an o-ring. Both of these work great although the Thingamabobbers tend to slide on your leader unless they are on the heavy butt section of the leader. A way to remedy this at least to some extent is to fill in the little metal ring with some aqua seal. It provides a nice rubbery surface with plenty of friction for the leader to bite into. I believe Chemeangler has another good method that he uses to help the Thingamabobber work better. Hopefully he will chime in here because he is very effective with that rig...
