How to put a bobber on a fishing line

Where does a fisherman go to get his hair cut?
The bobber shop.

It may seem like one of the simplest tasks, but there is a right way and lots of wrong ways to attach your bobber (floater, indicator, or what ever you call in your neck of the woods) to your fishing line. Over the years I have seen bobbers attached upside-down, barely attached at all, flung off of the line during casting, you name it. Well, here is a sure fire trick to easily attaching your bobber to your fishing line.

Step 1:
Press down on the spring loaded plastic button at the top of the bobber, being sure NOT to press down the metal hook. This will expose the metal hook.

Step 2:
Loop your fishing line through the hook and release tension on the spring loaded top button. The hook will catch your line and hold it in place.

Step 3:
Press down on the spring loaded top bobber button being sure to press the metal hook down this time.. This will cause a metal hook to be exposed at the bottom of the bobber.

Step 4:
loop your fishing line through the bottom hook and quit pressing the spring loaded top button on the bobber.

Congratulations! Your fishing line now has a bobber properly attached. (according to me, anyway)
