After looking at a few of the king leaders sold in stores, I have decided to make them myself... whom better to blame for something failing than myself. I was wondering how everyone makes their king leaders? The ones I saw in the store had three cable drops/hooks all about a hand's length apart and long headed up with an arm's length section of the same cable... is this the design I should follow or is there better ones out there? I was planning on using thin coated cable for the leaders but I saw some made of wire... any pros to using wire over cable in this case? Is there a certain way all three hooks rig into a bait or should they just be evenly spaced out? Explanations would be great but diagrams, if any, would be fantastic. Thanks fellas.

Gill Ripper and I will be on PINS early Friday morning through Sunday evening trying for everything and anything so stop by... share some sand for lunch/supper with us... or just say hello. I've just tied up some flies that I can't wait to try out on my fly rod so hopefully that turns out alright. We'll be in his silver (well I call it silver) S-10 with an orange kayak somewhere on the south end. See y'all on the sand.

if your going to be drifting ribbonfish that three drop set up is your best bet in my opinion... i usually use that set up with the single strand piano wire..... you should post this up on the BLUEWATER board... there might be some diffrent types of leaders those guys use for kings

Thanks bud... I'll give it a shot. E.J.'s truck is ready to go now so we'll be out there sometime Friday morning. He always volunteers his truck but I was thinking it was going to have to be my Ford to the rescue again ;) We'll be sure to keep an eye out for y'all...
