The low-cost, space-saving Pre-Rigged Kite Leader yo-yo hand reel is the most basic, efficient fishing gear you can find. It’s essentially a handline modernized with a molded plastic reel wrapped with monofilament. Pre-rigged for trolling, it is a compact, cost-effective, and efficient tool for the cruising sailor. A whole stack takes up less room than a typical tackle box. The wide, deep spool allows for the line, inline sinker, leader, and lure to be stowed, ready for use, right on the yo-yo.
The R&R Tackle Pre-Rigged Kite Leaders make kite fishing much easier. Pre-rigged and ready to fish, these Kite Leader Rigs were devised by Capt. Ray Rosher, one of South Florida’s premier charter skippers and winner of more than 30 major billfish tournaments. These rigs, which replicate the setups he’s used professionally for sailfish for many years, are built to measure a few inches short of 15′ to ensure compliance with IGFA requirements for 20-lb. test. The leaders average 14 foot 7 inches to 14 foot 10 inches. They are wrapped on a 6 1/2″ yo-yo hook to loop. Available in three models, 40lb clear fluorocarbon, 50lb clear monofilament and 50lb smoke blue monofilament. All of these leaders are 39938 6/0 Circle hooks.
As a note: Any leader used in a tournament should be checked to meet tournament requirements of hook style and length.
