    I was going to order one of them "do-it-yourself" Texas rig kits. I know there are a few differnt variations of it. Wonder what works the best for everybody.

    There's one way where the decoy is fixed to one end of the line and the weight slides and another way where the weight is fixed and the decoy slides.

    I prefer the one where the decoy is fixed and the weight slides.

    That's what I did to my 4 dozen after doing the first dozen having the weight sliding. I like the decoy sliding MUCH more!

    I've used them both ways; the end result is identical regardless of the way the line is attached (to decoy or to weight).

    The benefit of the decoy sliding is that, when picking up, you simply pick up the decoy, clip your carabiner to the loop that's right there by the keel, and go to the next decoy. Your hands stay dry throughout the entire pick up process. When the weight slides, you have to pull up the line until you reach the weight and loop and then clip, thus getting your hands wet.

    I have the kind where the weight slides. Guess what? I can pick up the decoy too. I have never reached down into the water to grab the weight.:l
