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
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.
