The Roller Up-Rigger is the complete answer to keeping the mainline on dropper rigs clear of the water for vast distances offshore when fishing over surf.

The advantages are immense. Strong rips and surf can easily be fished in light winds and vehicles and boats can easily pass under the mainline.

The result is many more successful kite fishing trips, far less risk of snags or kite loss and less work for the kitefisher.

While this system is more effective and efficient than a two kite dropper rig, deployment and recovery is much simpler, easier on the fisherman and safer for the gear.

Instead of having two kites on a single line, each kite is on a separate fishing line. This means each line only has half the load to carry and the fisherman only has half the load to haul.

The only connection between the two sets of gear is the roller. It is an extemely efficient system.

The kite on the up-rigger rig can be pulled in or let out anytime, even while the conventional dropper rig is setting through the roller. This means the roller can be positioned over the centre of the surf zone, which is undoubtedly the main problem area for kite fishers fishing from the shore.

For example, if the surf zone is 600 metres wide and the roller is let out 300 metres, the entire surf zone is straddled, (300 metres to the roller and the 300 metres beyond it ).

This leaves the kite on the dropper rig with the easy task of keeping only 400 metres of line supported clear of the water.

To haul the gear in the main rig can be hauled first through the roller, until the dropper line is close to the roller, before hauling in the up-rigger kite and detaching the roller or the up-rigger kite can be hauled down first.

Use whichever is best for the conditions on the day.

If you have a spare kite and reel with suitable line all you will need is the roller up-rigger with line attachment clip and a shock cord to attach it to on the spare reel. The cord for attaching the roller should be tied into the line 40 metres below the kite.

The roller up-rigger is very light and strong so is suitable for all kite fishing dropper rigs and fishing kites from pocket sleds through to delta force and mega air sized kites.



The roller is supplied with an attachment for attaching it over a shock cord in the kiteline.

One or two wraps around the center of the clip and a couple of twists each side and the clip is secure. Slip the red plastic sleeve up and put the line over the roller and push the plastic sleeve back and it's ready to go.
