Rigging Tips and Tricks

Our flies are effective no matter how you rig and fish them; but here are a few pointers on how to get the most out of them:

- We recommend utilizing a loop knot for our Amphipods.  This maximizes the tail action and is easier than a regular knot to tie on an Amphipod without tangling feathers in the eyelet.

- We recommend using 1-2 lb monofilament or fluorocarbon line when fishing our flies for maximum action and drop speed.  3 lb is the maximum we would recommend using. 

- Where it is legal to do so, you can tie on a fly with a loop knot and attach a heavier jig a few inches below. You could also use a sinker at the bottom, if it's illegal to use two baits on one line in your area.  This is a great way to get a tiny fly down to deep water fast, and greatly increases your chances at fish.

- Our flies, especially our #14 models, make for great spoon droppers.  Remove the treble from your favorite spoon, and use approximately 2 inches of mono or fluorocarbon to attach the spoon to fly.
