4 - AVOID TANGLES

Angling Times (UK) - - UNDERWATER SPECIAL -

When a lead is cast into the water, if it doesn’t hit the clip on a tight line there is a good chance it will tan­gle – maybe not se­ri­ously all the time, but it will cer­tainly tan­gle.

By hit­ting the line clip or stop­ping the rig just be­fore it hits the water, the hook­link will straighten out and keep the bait away from the main­line.

This can hap­pen even with stiff hook­links, although sup­ple ones are the worst. Hit the clip and the chances of a tan­gle are sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced.

Not hit­ting the clip causes tangles.
