Troutbitten Micro-Thin Mono Rig


4 in stock

The Troutbitten Micro-Thin Mono Rig is a specialized tool for tight line nymphing. Built with a five pound Maxima Chameleon butt section, it is useful when line sag must be kept to an absolute minimum, particularly at distances between twenty-two to thirty feet. Micro-Thin leaders also provide extra sensitivity, with better feel and strike detection than thicker leaders.

The Micro-Thin Mono Rig is better suited for cross stream presentations than the Troutbitten Standard Mono Rig. But it’s not versatile and is not recommended for indy styles, dry dropper or streamer work.

—  Sighter of 3X Rio Bicolor, with Backing Barrel, is built in.

— Includes a high quality, black, 1.5 mm tippet ring at the end of the sighter.

— Angler adds appropriate length of tippet.

— Comes on a three-inch plastic spool, perfect for storing long leaders.

Also Offered: All three Troutbitten Mono Rigs are available as a full kit — found HERE.

What water type? Where are they eating?

Smith emerged from the hemlocks with a saunter, and he paused at the shade line to find me. As he scanned up and down the river, I noticed his rod, broken down and tied in half for transport, the way we’d been doing it for years. Either Smith was so satisfied with the...

Fifty Fly Fishing Tips: #20 — Find the Best Light Angles, and See What You’re Fishing

As the sun dropped below the tree line, the water surface turned a dark gunmetal grey, and I lost track of my caddis. I fought the glare for a while, tilting my head, pushing my sunglasses up to my forehead and flipping them back down minutes later. I still couldn’t...

Natural vs Attractive Presentations

I’ve been fishing with Smith for over a decade now. And when we first met, he was an inexperienced but eager angler with a pile of questions. Much of what he knew about fly fishing at the time had been learned intuitively, from time spent on the water answering his...

Fifty Fly Fishing Tips: #36 — Dry flies and flotation — Building in some buoyancy and preserving it

Hatch season is just around the corner. On some rivers we’ve already experienced good fishing over eager trout rising to delicate Blue Winged Olives. And somewhere in the distance, a chorus grows louder — the Grannoms are coming, the Grannoms are coming. Oh sure,...
