I has come to my attention that I do not fish enough with the float rig presentation.. I was wondering how many other people are making the same mistake. Fishing dropoffs with floating rigs has been a long time activity of some fishermen I am sure. I also know it pays off. But, how many are using float rigs to present bait in a different way. Consider using them in heavy cover. I know you would think that river fishing, heavy cover, and floats don't go together. The rig known as the Paternoster rig is great for such adventures. Unfortunately I do not know how to post an illustration of the rig at this time(If someone else can that would be great). It consists of a large tube float on a separate line with a weight(1/2 to 8 oz.) on the same line.The main line has a barrel swivel and a short leader of stiffer line on it. This minimizes tangling of the two lines. With this you can cast slightly downstream of your target(in current) and let the rig hold your bait a set distance from the heaviest of cover. You may want to experiment with the area before you get set up to do this, you will likely lose a rig or two trying to figure out exactly how close you can get to the cover. Unless of course you know the area very, very well. Anyways this is something that I will be trying for the first time this year, so if there is anyone who knows the rig and its limitations well feel free to add. Thanks.!
