A Few Rigs

By , 8 August, 2010 20:48

Have just spent a bit of time while not being able to fish, doing some diagrams and writing a few words on some of the rigs I use. I’m hoping to add to them at some stage and include some of the more obscure ones out there. This isn’t and wasn’t meant to be a definitive guide to rigs and rig building and I realise that there are many variants of these rigs  – but the ones shown here are just the ones that I use.

Click and be taken to the wonderful world of rigs.

Clipped Paternoster

Basically, a flapper that has the hooks clipped down to make the rig more aerodynamic for casting. Constructed the same way except for the use of cascade swivels in place of the lower normal swivels. A hook length clips onto the cascade swivel below it. The lowest hook clips into either the built in clip of an impact lead (as illustrated), or an impact shield, whatever your preference is. I have made the hook lengths at 12 inches but they can be longer or shorter – just make sure that the hook length does not hit the hook length above it or below it, so adjust the distance between the trapped swivels accordingly.
