Keiryu Rigs

Keiryu Rigs give you hook, line and sinker - and markers - ready to go.

Each package has two fully rigged lines, two extra snelled hooks and six split shot. The package indicates that the rigs are intended for 4.5m rods. The line is about 1' longer than a 4.5m rod, so I think it would work quite well for 5.3-5.4m rods as well.

To use these rigs, you will want a knot in lillian (which I take out at the end of the day when I disassemble the rod to let it dry overnight). Attach the line as you would a furled line.

The markers can be moved up or down the line. Space them a few inches apart, with the lowest one above the water's surface when your hook is at the depth you want.

Add a split shot (two if the water is deep and the current is swift) perhaps 8" above the hook. The packages come from Japan with lead shot. It is illegal to sell lead shot in New York, so I replace the lead shot that came with the rigs with Dinsmore's Lead Free BB shot.

The back of the package suggests either a pair of salmon eggs, a small worm or a nymph taken from under a rock on the stream you are fishing. Meal worms and wax worms work well also.

Please note: The Keiryu Rigs use size .6 line, which is stronger than recommended for the Suntech ZPRO and Kurenai, the Nissin Air Stage seiryu rods and the Nissin 2-Way 450ZX soft.
