Man, one of my favorite techniques AND Zeppelin? Speakin' my language bud.

A few points- one doesn't have to use a handful of shot for the technique. On slower water, I frequently run a bounce rig with two #6 shot on point.

Also, if you're going to use their clinch on standing line with overhand knots for stoppers, your standing line better be stout, because overhand knots cut its breaking strength by about half.

I normally build my two fly bounce rigs by tying on tippet twice and leaving the tags long. If you drop down to lighter mono for the point section, you can break snagged weights off and get your flies back.
