HOW TO TIE NIGEL’S BOTTOM-BAIT RIG
NIgel uses 25lb Rig Marole Hydrolink. It has a stiff fluorocarbon inner and a soft braided coating. The first step is to pull back the outer coating to reveal the fluorocarbon, then snip off a section 3in or 4in long. Pass the hooklink material through the eye, from back to front, and attach the hook using a standard knotless knot. Judge the length of kicker you want, and fold the Hydrolink over at a sharp angle at this point.
