Coastal Steelhead Tungsten Weighted Rig


Coastal Steelhead Tungsten Weighted Rig



1 year ago

This leader system is used to target coastal steelhead using a Jaydacator balsa float (3' of depth adjustment) and a free-sliding tungsten bullet weight. This rig gets the beads or fly down fast and casts great. If you snag up, the rig will break at the tippet ring 95% of the time so you save most of your rig and it's a quick re-rig (one knot if you pre-tie your beads ahead of time) and you are back in the water.

The floats are handmade - here's the guy's IG. It is the only way to purchase them currently:
