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.
A true fisherperson is a person who when it comes to new rods, reels, boats etc, considers the fact they do not need them, insufficient reason not to buy them !
