5 color set up for SWR-tuff line micro lead used (this set up can also be used off the boards in spring when fish are high up) ( this set up is used on our riggers during a mid summer day when conditions warrant going deep)

We fish our lead off of a tow line with large boards. Attach the backing to the release. If using inline boards, attach the backing to the release, twist and rubber band it. (Tx44)
