What you need…
Step 1. Strip back 4 inches of coating, our favourite is 10lb Target Speciskin in gravel. Tie a double overhand loop to form the hair.
Step 2. Mount an imitation buoyant maggot length ways and a buoyant caster sideways, this creates a ‘T-shape’ hook bait.
Step 3. Add a hair stop to keep the bait in place. Using a simple knotless knot whip down the hook shank. We prefer a short hair.
Step 4. Tie a simple figure of 8 loop in the end of the hook length.
Step 5. Finished rig – thread a PVA Micromesh stick of groundbait down the hook length and carefully push the hook point into the bag.
