Technical Rig Design
(Below left) I am going to use these
Armapoint SSBP hooks for this rig _
(Middle left) This Dark Mantis is a
fairly new product on the market, but
a good one.
(Bottom left) Take 12ins of hooklink,
form an overhand loop, and pass the
tag end back through.
(Below right) Wrap the tag end four
times round the main hooklength
and pass back through the first
overhand loop
(Middle right) Moisten the knot, pull
up slowly and it should leave a loop
like this, then trim the tag end.
(Bottom right) Do the same for the
other end of the book section, but add
a micro swivel like so.

my observations, which I am sure the
masses will argue over, but when I
have been busy with the marker and

rod and observation, the location of
