We were recently contacted by Grey, a fisherman out of Oregon. He had a couple of questions about our floats and what weight he should be using. He writes:
Brand new to float fishing steelhead/ salmon; using 1/8 and/or 1/4 oz. jigs; 12 to 17 lb. test w/ 8 or 10 lb leader w/ up to 3/8 sinker. Bank fish on the upper Rogue in Oregon.
1. Which float would you advise ? AF2 or AF3 ?
2. What float weight ?
Grey, You might want to think about lighten up your main line to 10-12lb test…
Deeper runs – you will want to use AF3…
We are always happy to answer questions about our products. We love to talk fishing! Call us at 360-718-8988 or email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Aero-Float series was recently reviewed in the March issue of Salmon Trout Steelheader. Please check out the Pro Reports article for a great rundown of our floats and available accessories.
We will be posting a video series on float fishing soon. Check back soon for updates.
