Shaun Walburn talks about catching salmon and steelhead on a simple corky rig. “There are a few different ways to rig it up but they are all essentially the same however the way I choose to rig mine up is I use a 24 inch leader generally. The length of my leader is determined by the depth of the water that I am fishing. The deeper the water, the longer I go with the leader. I cut a piece of flora carbon material. I will tie a salmon egg knot also referred to as the bumper knot on the hook so you can attach bait or eggs if you choose to. Next step is ironic corky number 12 and peg it about 1 1/2 inches above the hook and run a little tuft of white yarn off the back of the corky. The reason for that is that I want it to mimic a spawned out egg of either a salmon or a steelhead because they are instinct is to crush the egg, survival of the fittest. Once I have that established, I tie a barrel swivel on the opposite end of the hook and then I run a snap swivel up the main line and then I tie my tag end off of my rod and reel set up. After I put the snap swivel on, that's what I am going to use to attach my weight and the amount of weight is determined by the flow of the river, how fast or slow it is. I cast out and let it drift through a hole or a transition in the bottom where there may be a channel or a drop off.
