Adjustable Float Rig

This float rig is designed to be adjustable during a fishing session so that the depth at which the bait is set can be altered. The neoprene stop knot at the top of the rig is tied onto the mainline and can be moved up or down the line which allows the float to be set at different depths. This allows the angler to adjust the depth at which the baited hook is presented and find the feeding fish. Due to its un-aerodynamic design, this rig can only be cast short distances regardless of the casting technique that is used, so it is best suited to be used from piers, harbours and rock marks which give way to deep water close in.
