Simple Fishing Tip - Mainline Rigging for the Big River

Here is a simple but very versatile rigging for the mainline of your Columbia River Fishing Pole. It is versatile in that it works for either Sturgeon or Salmon. Spring or Fall.

Simply beads, a bead-chain, a snap-swivel, and a clamping clamp thingy.

At the end of our 65# braided mainline, we first put the snap-swivel (for weight or our lead-line); then 4-5 beads go on and we tie off to the bead-chain swivel.

The last clampy thing allows us to quickly interchange Sturgeon leaders or salmon leaders.

The simple profile also minimizes the amount of weeds and debris we collect. It works and is quick.
