Basic Fishing Rig - Bobber, Split Shot, and Trout Worm
I have many fans following my Instagram and seeing me catch lots of trout. They were asking what fishing rig I am using. I use a simple Bobber, Split Shot, and Trout Worm rig.
First off, I see many people using way too big of equipment for trout fishing. What you want is small hooks (8 or smaller), thin line (I prefer 4# test), and a small bobber.
The size of the bobber determines the number of split shot. You want enough split shot that the bobber just barely floats on the surface. This way the fish will not feel the resistance when they strike the worm.
Presentation is everything hooking the worm. I thread hook through the worm.
