THE WASHING LINE RIG
The Washing Line is a fantastic stillwater rig and will catch Trout in stillwaters when many other options fail. The team of flies use the buoyancy of a booby to lift the remaining nymphs above the lake bed or loch. This is ideal when buzzers on droppers when other tactics are not working. In a reverse to normal Trout tactics / rigs the point fly is a booby, buoyant lifting the rig in the air. The heaviest fly is set at the other end of the rig. The effect is that when using an Intermediate or , Slow Sinking or Sinking line that they angle down in the water, off the horizontal leader, just like clothing hanging down from a washing line. Teams of buzzers on the point are good nymph imitators such as Gold Ribbed Hares Ears or Pheasant Tail Nymphs or Diawl Bach on each dropper. Depending on the type of line used (Intermediate / Sinking) this rig can simulate buzzers that are nearing the surface just before they reach the top and emerge into adults.
When on lakes and normal anglers are fishing deep with three buzzers on droppers tied to a long leader try this rig, it can account for a much greater catch, even when it is too early for a hatch nymphs may be getting ready for the hatch and moving up through the water. This is when the 'washing line rig' is deadly.
