The Rigs Page - Rik's Pellet Rig
A simple hair-rig devised by Big Rik that uses a baitband for fishing pellets over prolonged periods.
|RIK'S PELLET RIG|
Most pellets break down rather rapidly, which means that a conventional hair-rig is pretty useless, for the pellet begins to dissolve and the hair-stop either falls out or it no longer retains the pellet.
This is a simple rig for hair-rigging pellets for longer periods. The hair is formed from a baitband and I put a stop above and below the bait with the band under tension.
This keeps it all in place.
|About the Rigs Page|
The Rigs Page is a library of features to illustrate all those rigs that will be useful to both beginners and experienced anglers.
The rigs can be extremely simple and well known, or very complicated and little known, it doesn't matter providing they make some kind of sense and have a really practical application.
It could be a standard running leger rig that a beginner will appreciate seeing in pictures, or a very complicated anti-eject carp rig that the experienced carp angler would like to see.
If you wish to contribute a rig to this section please remember that the emphasis is on illustration rather than words. Good line drawings are fine in the absence of photographs. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
