How to tie a rotary drop shot rig?
How to tie a rotary drop shot rig? This is a question often asked here at Fishing Pro Shop in Pretoria.
Pro angler Divan Coetzee, our resident bass expert will do his best to answer below.
Starting from the top and working our way down, the first order of business is to slide a gummy stop onto your mainline fluorocarbon leader (8-12lb). The gummy keeps the hook in place and prevents it from sliding up the line. Secondly, the hook is threaded onto the line facing upward, followed by a 3mm soft bead to protect the knot. Tie in a number 10 or 12 power swivel to keep everything in place. Lastly, tie in your sinker line at the bottom end of the swivel and attach your preferred size weight relative to the depth you intend on fishing. Standard mono flyfishing tippet with a low breaking strain is ideal to use as a sacrificial sinker line, this ensures that you don’t lose your entire rig if you get stuck on the bottom. The rotary setup also alleviates line twist and allows for more freedom of movement.
