Had a blast at the sandy river today! Between my cousin and i we landed 8 fish, and lost a couple . Put back a few natives including a buitiful 18 lb native my cousin caught. Just using corke and yarn!

tdales said:do you use weight with your yarn and corke set up, and if so how much and where do you place it on your set up? Thanks

that's the idea... so you're not dragging the hook on the bottom causing it to snag instead of drifting with the current. so keep the leader short enough that the corkie/yarn doesn't drift above the fish.
yes... slinkies, lead, split shots... whatever to get the corkie/yarn to the bottom of the water column where the fish hang out. the weight can be anywhere between the main line and hook. the length of your leader is determined by water clarity, temp, color, etc. 18" - 24" from the hook would work. you can always go shorter or longer...
(sorry for the hijack.. just trying to answer a newbie question...)
