A step by step guide to building an estuary bass rig.
3. To the sliding swivel tie on 24-inches of 30lb to 40lb Fluorocarbon.
This rig gives excellent rod tip and hand felt bite detection as the hook and main line are pull in the same direction, but also it maximises the power of the strike directly to the hook. That said, with the sliding swivel, a cautious bass can be allowed to pull line freely through the sliding swivel without fully feeling the lead weight. Fish as light as you sensibly can, and you will catch more bass as a result!
