Delphin Red Code 2-7g 213cm Ultra Light rod

Ultralight Micro Jigging

I bought a new rod. I know, I said I was going to use just one rod for all my fishing but, once again, inspired by Chris the Ginger Fisherman I decided that micro jigging might be an effective method on my stretch of the Radbuza river.

The Rod

The rod I chose is the 213cm (7ft) Delphin Red Code 2-7g paired with my Shimano Sahara 1000r

I chose this rod, not for it’s funky red camouflage handle, but for its length, its semi-parabolic action, its 2-7g casting weight and, of course, it’s sale price which was around 800čk (£28).

Main Line

I intend to use two different lines for micro jigging, my original Savage Gear Silencer II 0.09mm braid in dark green and a new addition, 0.08 Berkley Sick braid in red.

For the leader I will be using 0.148mm Delphin FLR Carbon fluorocarbon line – I’ve moved on from my early fluorcarbon woes and think I have addressed my problems and concerns with it.

Lures and Jigheads

When it comes to the business end of the Radbuza ultralight setup, I will be using my existing size 8 3g jigheads with a selection of small (3cm – 5cm) lures but will also be trying my very own, Ginger Fisherman inspired micro lures which are based on #10 0.9g jigheads with added tungsten putty and parts of creature baits.
