So without wanting to sound thick, I dont understand the float part? So under the float I should have 3 or so meters of line with my hook and sinker attached?
Im fimiliar with the ledger rig. Wonder why that doesnt work so well?
No the sinker rolls along the bottom & the small float is maybe 200mm below the bait
on the trace so as to raise the bait off the bottom away from weed. A tiny bubble float
or suchlike would be ideal but I did not have one so improvised with a small chunk of
that white plastic foam stuff used for refrigerated packaging etc. The float will remain
submerged held down by the sinker & only needs to provide enough buoyancy to keep
the bait above the weed.
Yeah .... in theory a ledger rig should acheive the same but suspect the drag in the line
towards the start & end of the drift is prone to dragging the bait down also seems to
collect more weed .... altho does catch fish at times.
They do catch fish spinning altho I have never seen it happen & given the incredible rate
of water flow your drift is over in a flash even moreso if flyfishing.
I watched about 8 guys from a fishing club spin & flyfish for almost 6 hrs. without any of
them taking a fish yet maybe 18 or 20 were taken on bait in that time ... my two included.
When you're too old to fish anymore...What would you rather have?... Memories of the fish you once caught...or the friends you made while fishing?
