If you use heavy Nylon thread and tie a double overhand knot over the main line, it will do the same thing.

nylon thread? don't have any of that, how about heavy mono line?  seems like that might work.
tight lines....

I don't know if the mono will have enought friction to hold the knot in place or if it is limp enough to stay tied ? I'd give it a shot and see if it works ? Worse comes to worse, you can set up a midnight sewing box raid somewhere ! ;D  yarn would work too, I'll bet !

Thats the stuff, it just needs to be heavy enough that the knot stops the bobber from sliding on the line from the depth you set it for !

Only bobber I use lately is the rocket bobber.  Comes in 2 sizes, casts a mile, can be used as a normal or a slip bobber rig and pulls through the water nice and easy.  Don't fish for walleye as much as I would like but it works well for finicky crappie so I would imagine walleye would be the same way.  Any time you need to be able to cast, shore fishing or whatnot, the rocket bobber is the way to go.  Good fishin

I have been using Wing-It slip bobbers and really liking them for river fishing. I dont think the walleye can feel them pulling in the current.

The knotted line works, but I have been using these for years;

They are very inexpensive and if you value your time at all they are cheaper than a DIY project... But with out the satisfaction of doing it yourself.

Thill has a new one called the wobble bobber that jigs your lure and  www.clearlyoutdoors.com  has one that you can put on without needing to slide it up your line.  Happy trails.

I use these all the time and have found for best results to use two of them. It totally prevents them slipping up the line
