In the Spring, before the stripers show up in the ocean, some fishermen fish for trout that have been stocked in freshwater streams and lakes.

Four fly rods are housed in tubes of linen-stitched saddle leather and concealed under the cargo cover, below which are three cases of burr walnut and saddle. The first is the master tackle station, for the cradling of reels, drakes, vises, and presumably tippets. Next to it is waterproof trunk for the storage of waders and other wet gear; separate leather cases are provided for the stowage of landing nets. A third case is for refreshment, securing Mulliner fine china, "up to three metal flasks", and a food storage compartment.
Should one land a prize brown or rainbow, the gutting thereof can be handled cleanly on integrated sill-protection covers.
The Mojo Rig is actually quite simple. Just set up to troll a lure, like a large Swim Shad. However add a 3-way swivel about 15 feet ahead of the lure, then add about a 4 ft leader, and attach the Mojo Lure.
You can catch bass on both the Swim Shad and the Mojo Lure.
The Mojo Lure is a heavy bucktail with the hairs tied forward so that they flare out when trolled. These are large bucktails - 8, 12, 16, 24 and even 32 ounces. Use a weight that will get your rig down near the bottom.
A Maja Magic Mojo uses a Tony Maja Bunker Spoon for the trolled lure, rather than a Swim Shad.
