All CMe Trolling meat rigs are tied with 50# Seaguar fluorocarbon, a hand sharpened #1 VMC 4X treble hook, a 5/0 VMC octopus single hook, a 6 ball 100# SS bead chain and an 88# duolock snap. All the meat rigs are approx. 53 inches long and the flies are spaced every 12 inches. However, the flies can be adjusted if you would like a different spacing. The tournament tied rig has a protective tube between the hooks, where the most line damage can occur due to the fish’s teeth. It also keeps the treble hook at the end of the meat strip. This prevents the treble hook from sliding all the way up to the meat head and missing the short bite!!
