THE wire-stemmed DH11 comes in sizes from 0.5g to 4g and it’s the perfect all-rounder for a variety of jobs. It’s as much at home with pinkie or breadpunch as it is with maggots and casters or seed baits such as hemp and tares.
The smaller sizes from 0.5g to 1.5g feature 1.2mm nylon bristles, which are perfect for detecting the shyest of bites from small fish.
These rigs are fished at dead depth, just off bottom or slightly overdepth, and are made up on 0.12mm mainlines.
In the bigger 2g, 3g and 4g sizes the bristle is 1.5mm, which is the most common diameter I tend to use for most of my pole floats on rivers.
