Default Summer Steelie stream rigs (pics)(long)

Here are a few pics of simple summer steelhead rigs that I commonly see asked about, and that seem to work for me. I hope I'm not giving away anyone's favorite set-up. :shocked:

All mainline is 10# Ande, leaders either flourocarbon or 8# Maxima Ultra green. Swivels are size 7.

The first is a pic of a typical bobber set up. The bobber on the left is fixed (non moving) and the one on the right is a sliding set up. Either works well with jigs/baits.


The next is a bobber and jig set-up. Notice the swivel and the spilt attached to the leader. 1/8 oz. jig.


A selection of summer jigs:


Drift rig (leader is shown going to the left;main to the right)& corky selection (size 2 hook):


And a few spinners:


Good fishing,
Chris Nordling

Thank's alot for the post. That is really good stuff. I am also glad to see the way you fish your bobber rig. I fish the same way as your sliding float. I just started this year. But now it gives me confidence it will catch fish. Thank's again, Butch.

Good post but....... When fishing the fixed float setup w/ a jig I would eliminate the swivel, really no need. IMO the less knots you have between you and the fish the better. Just my .

I wouldn't discount the swivel, as it serves many purposes. First, it allows you to run a different # test to the jig (mainline 10, leader 10 or less), ultimately sacrificing the jig, not the float (or entire set-up), to a snagged cast. It also serves as an excellent way to connect a mainline that is a "super braid" to a mono leader. With some bobber set-ups, the swivel can also act as a bobber-stop,particularly helpful when using a cork setup, or a cast-a-bubble. Often times I can tie a 3' leader, and set my float just above the swivel to avoid the usual downward slippage that occurs eventually when making repeated casts.

The number if knots in your terminal gear should be minimal, however, if you are worried about the knot serving as a weak point, I suggest you learn a few different knots, and use those instead. There are several that retain 100% strength when they are tied, and seated correctly.

Hope this helps,
Chris Nordling

Also with the swivel you avoid major line twist..
