Game Fish: Quick rig for Feathers, Kona’s and Skirted Lures

 

Tutorial by Mike Laubscher of  Blue Water Charters | Durban

 

This is a very quick and simple rig to make, and yet very effective. What I like about this rig is that even on the boat you can whip it together in no time, and even better yet, it is very cheap to make and so ideal for those fishing on a tight budget. It offer rigidity, and the twisted double line also offer high abrasion resistance where it counts most.

This rig will work from your small lures with light leader’s right through to the heavy stuff; it swims true and allows your lure to swim well.

1.

Materials:

- Your leader material (I have used 300lb mono for the tutorial)

- Your hook (I have used an 8/0 Tuna Bend)

- 1 Aluminium or copper crimp to suit your leader

2.

Cut your leader to length, wrap it nicely and leave some loose to work with; then slide your crimp on.

3.

Leaving enough length to do your twist, feed your leader through the bottom of the hook eye wrap around the hook shank and then feed the leader through the top of the hook eye.

4.

Cut the tag end to the required length and slide the crimp over both lines, remember that the crimp will stop against your lure head once completed.

5.

 Using a lighter, burn your tag end to form a small mushroom head that will stop the crimp from sliding past.

6.  

Pull you crimp up against the hook eye and pull the wraps tight.

7.

 Holding the main line tight start twisting the crimp around it causing the tag end to twist around the main line whilst moving the crimp slowly toward the end of the tag line.

8.

Once you reach the end of your hold tight and crimp ensuring the mushroom head is nicely against the crimp.

9.  

Your finished twisted Quick Rig, ready to be attached to your lure.
