2 PIN IT TO THE DECK
A SHORT fluorocarbon leader at the terminal end of your winter leger rig can make a big difference in cold and clear water when wise fish are the target. Fluorocarbon is almost invisible in water, and also very heavy, so it’s bound to lay hard on the bottom.
When fish move over your rig, they won’t bump into the usual line protruding off the bottom and spook
out of the swim. A leader of just three or four feet of 0.30mm fluorocarbon will do the trick perfectly. Simply loop-to-loop connect the leader to the mainline, with your chosen leger or feeder rig tied on the fluorocarbon as normal.
Three or four feet is right for a fluoro leader.
Fluorocarbon – heavy and hard to see.
