I have noticed interest on here about the Michigan Rig. It has been around for a long time, I've been using it for years. This rig is absolutely deadly on panfish. 90% of my rods are setup this way. It is a simple rig, Jig on bottom for weight with a Fly tied about a foot above it. I like to use a Heavy Metal 3mm jig on bottom and a small tungsten bead head fly(#14-#16 hook) Seems simple enough but the common question is: How do you tie the fly to your line. The best knot I have used is a Dropper Loop Knot. This is a double cinch knot. I have landed a lot of pike and bass with this knot. The other knots I ran would weaken my line and fail. I haven't had any failures with this knot. How to tie a Dropper Loop Knot. This knot can be frustrating at first. Do not forgot to lubricate the line with a little saliva before cinching down the knot. With smaller diameter line you will need to make more twist. I do 7-8 twist for 2 lb line and 6 for 4lb. I also like my loop to be about a half inch from the main line to the top of the loop. If you make it to long the fly will hang to low and get caught on your mainline. I hope this helps! Feel free to post any questions. Good luck and be safe, also be prepared for doubles! Happens often with this rig.
