THE RIG

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

To cope with the weed and the an­tic­i­pated size of fish, I went for 18lb line to which I at­tached an E-S-P safety clip with a 3oz weight at­tached. I moist­ened the tail rub­ber so it would de­tach with ease.

An 8ins brown Tung­sten Loaded hook­length blended into the bot­tom, and a boom en­sured the lead would kick away nicely. At the busi­ness end, I knot­less-knot­ted a size 4 Cryo­gen Grip­per hook with a piece of shrink tub­ing to cre­ate a line-aligner. The hair was long enough to dis­cour­age other species, as was the size of the bait, a 20mm Sticky Krill Tuff Ones. I nicked a PVA mesh bag of a dozen free of­fer­ings to a cou­ple of rods.
