poor rig design.

Post by geejay on Thu Mar 27, 2008 6:43 am

some common problems i've seen & done that don't work too well.
1, badly tied knots,- learn to tie 'em correctly.

2, bit clips- that don't release - a, snood has too tight a tension on it,
b, snood wrapped around rig body,
c, with impact sheilds,- hook accidently trapped between line and sheild.

- that release dureing cast, -a, not enough tension on snood.
b, extremely large baits, get pulled out of the clips when casting, by wind drag.
c, snood has stretched and is now too slack.
d, forgot to clip the hook in Im wiv stupid done that one :oops:


3, tangles, generally.- main causes -a, long snoods.
b, light line snoods,
( often when fishing in daylight for shy species a light snood is preferable to aid bait presentation , booms can help but i rarely use them.)
c, a rig that rolls over itsself when fishing a bait roveing around on the bottom .

light lines- most sea fish are not line shy, and to combat line abrasion on the sea bed or by crabs i mostly use snoods between 30lb and 60lb for bait fishing unless i'm useing a float or estuary fishing.

gj,

snood;- is simply the bit o line between yer hook and the rest of the rig Wink

bait clip;- a device that a baited hook clips into , either down the rig towards the lead or up away from it, so as to keep the rig streamlined for extra distance and/or to stop the snood helicoptering around and tangleing during the cast.

{ the early ones were simple, just an old hook with the point cut off bound to the rig body by telephone wire or held in place with rig tube, later came a plastic design or 2 . b4 cascade swivels were on the market , these swivels incorperated a small wire bait clip and are used to connect a snood to the rig body with the swivel trapped between beads.
the hook from the snood above this clipps down here.}

impact sheilds;- a bait clip originally marketed by gemini, which fits tight behind the lead its a small plastic cone shape which slides up the line on impact with the water just a short way till a fixed bead trips it and it will eject the baited hook from the clip, to some extent this also helps stop soft baits getting smashed up as the cast hits the water.
more recently impact leads have been developed which have a simalar effect but the clip is integral as part of the lead.

the latest bit o kit to hit the beaches is the d-vice, i've only heard good reports so far.
basically the lead has a plastic tube behind it in which sits your soft baits perfectly presented on their hook/s , the lead has some cutouts which allows water on impact to enter the tube and gently puff the baited hooks out to do their worst with the baits still in tip top condition.
i got one back in november but havn't tried it yet.
