Hi all, I've been looking at the urfe rig recently as a different approach for clean ground fishing but wonder what advantages it has over a running ledger setup?
Thanks for the reply. Could you not use the same long multi hook rig with a running ledger? Might it not cast as well?One advantage is you can have up to three hooks on an urfe rig and you can fish with a really long rig some of mine are about 18 ft long a hook on end one in middle and one 2 or 3 ft below lead ,so you can use 3 different baits if you want ,you might not see bites as hooks are other side of lead where as running ledger line runs through lead /lead clip and will show a bite .
So with urfe leave rig out for desired length of time and then reel in , hope this helps it has caught me fish when it seems nothing else will.
Have you had the chance to make a comparison?The only difference I can see is that the urfe has a fixed lead which must negatively affect bite detection as you say. I'll think I'll try the running ledger with a long trace with a dropper and see how it compares to an urfe. Thanks again for the info.
No, not really had the chance to make a decent comparison yet. Just one outing where I tried both rigs and had two flounder on the running ledger with a dropper. Both rigs seemed to cast OK and didn't tangle in use.Have you had the chance to make a comparison?
I also thought urfe bar would affect bite detection. Was this the case?
