Here are the components you need to do the ‘southern trout eater’ Huddleston Rig.:

8″ Huddleston Deluxe Rainbow Trout

Owner ST-66 Stinger Treble Hooks (#4 in the rear & #2 up front)

Owner Hyper Wire Split Ring #5

Double Barrel Crimps, Size 1B

80# Leader Material (for making the harness)

Hand Crimping Tool

Standard Paper Clip

If you want to see this rig in action, we highly recommend you take a look at our film, Southern Trout Eaters.  70% of the fish in the film (and 75+ fish over 5 pounds are featured in the film) are caught on this rig.


  1. Great rig Matt, it really has made a difference in getting those light biters in the boat. I use it 95% of the time and never had an issue of injuring a fish. STE was excellent, hope to see more projects from you.
