Balloon Rig

This rig consists of a circle hook tied to the end of the line, usually with a shock leader. A balloon is tied up above the hook to the line. Above that tie a stopper knot or a swivel to stop the baloon from riding up the line. The stopper knot can be a uni knot with both ends clipped off. The resistance of the balloon will set the circle hook for you, even on fish such as Tarpon.
