Long Link Running Ledger

This is an adaptation of the standard running ledger and utilises a length of line to connect the weight to the sliding swivel on the main line. The main purpose of  the rig is to minimise resistance when a fish picks up and runs with the bait. Simple and easy to set up.

1. Feed main line through a swivel, slide on a bead and tie to a second swivel.

2. Tie or clip your hook length to the end of the second swivel

3. Tie a two to three foot length of line (same poundage as shock leader or main line if no shock leader being used) to the first swivel and then tie on a link or split ring to the free end. Weight will be attached to this.
