The new Popper/Dropper rig is made using the same premium monofilament used in our Miskito Coast All Purpose Leaders. The Popper/Dropper rig is 10 feet long, 8 lb test (Why 8 lb test? When you get two big fat bluegills on this rig at one time you will be happy its 8 lb test!), knotted leader using the popular Quick Change Snaps to make it easy to quickly change flies without the burden of tying the fly on and cutting the leader each time you make a change. The first Quick Change Snap is tied to the end of the leader. About 20″ up the leader is the second Quick Change Snap. On the end Snap put on a sinking fly, we suggest the Ligon Bream Killer size 8, and on the other Snap put on a floating fly, we suggest something like a Rollie Pollie or BoogleBullet in hook size 4 or 6. The floating fly becomes your strike indicator. Don’t be surprised if you catch two fish at the same time, one on each fly. Looking for a way to attach the leader to the fly line?
BreamBugs offers two other models of the Miskito Coat Popper/Dropper Rigs. There is the 6 lb test version for smaller flies and trout fishing and the 10 lb test for larger flies and bass.
It is not uncommon to catch two fish on one cast. Also, having both a floating fly and a sinking fly helps determine where the fish are feeding, surface or underwater.
