Technical Rig Design
(Top left) It should look like this.
(Middle left) Take some of your chosen fluorocarbon hooklink material.
(Botton left) Tie that to the micro swivel with a 3-4-turn blood knot and add your
(Top right) Then, as if you were tying a chod rig, set the hooklink to half what you
want it, form a loop on the hook, wrap the tag end round the shank approx eight
times, and put it back through the formed loop. It should look like this.
(Middle right) Add your choice of rig ring and form a loop with the tag end. Pass
that back through the eye, trim, then blob the end with a lighter.
(Bottom right) To construct the helicopter setup, pass the looped leadcore
through the chosen lead.
the preferred silt pockets or troughs,
and we now have to formulate a plan
to create an additional feeding frenzy
with our desired baits, and ultimately
get the right rig for the job.
In order to select your chosen plan
of attack for your silt assault, you
need to establish a rough idea of the
depth of the silt. It is no use fishing
into 3ft of the stuff with 4oz leads and
a 3in hooklink, so in order to ascertain
a depth, take a length of white wool or
natural string and tie that directly to
the boom on your marker set up and
cast to the desired spot, feathering
the lead down so that it falls vertically, then when it touches down,
leave it for a few moments to take the
silt on board into the wool or string,
then wind it in. You should have a line
on the string, which will give you the
approximate depth. This will be a
fairly good indicator for the rest of the
lake as well because generally very
silty lakes will be very old and on the
smaller side, and quite often surrounded by prolific arboreal growth,
which has contributed to the silty
