Blasted spring bobbers I have yet to find one that works with one of my blasted rods.
I'm buying supper glue to get the stupid things to stay put and stop the ridiculousness.
it's that or toss em in the round file.

this post has been edited for language my words were much more colorful when I bought a different style that are as worthless as the first ones.

If you don't care what it looks like ( which, if you are planning to try super glue, you don't) just use some 5 minute epoxy

thanks guys, I do care what it looks like I'm not planning on big goober gobs of crap to get in the way. I have some experience fly tying so I think I can manage to do either without making it look like crud.

If the spring bobber is a round wire? Be sure to put a couple little bends and rough it up. This will help it from twisting and pulling off.

Just go buy the St. Croix spring tip and save yourself the struggles of life man...life's just too short to deal with ordinary spring bobbers....many lives taken, don't be a statistic.

Also with the st. Croix spring bobber, which is the only on I will use you do need to replace the grommet every couple of years to keep the snug fit.

I use inexpensive ice rods and attach my spring bobbers permanently. I use the type of spring bobber that is a flat piece of spring steel with a loop on the end (like HT mamooska). I attach it by wrapping it with nylon thread just like the way they attach rod guides. Then I soak the thread wraps in super glue. I have a fly tying bobbin that helps alot, but I think you could get by without one.

I tie mine on with thread adding finger nail polish to keep it in place. I should say I put the nail polish under the thread and on top.
