Then add a 1.5mm rig ring with an overhand knot.
Set the ring and hair length before tying off with a knotless knot.
Tie the opposite end off with a figure of eight knot and blob the end.
Add a couple of blobs of putty to the rig.
ESP leadcore, the industry standard?
Remove 5ins of lead from the leadcore, then insert the needle as shown.
This is just the sort of thinking that
separates the regular angler from the
good angler, where the ability to
improvise, adapt and overcome really
helps win the prize. Ben has been
using Tails Up bait for around five
years now, and has put a lot of faith in
the OCM boilies (orange and condensed milk), and he agrees with me
about the scattering of random baits

approach is with boilies and pellets,
the latter being a high-oil version
from the Bait Warehouse.
So for Ben’s rig, he brought out a

breakaway system not dissimilar to
mine, but on a helicopter leadcore
arrangement. The rig itself is fairly
straightforward to tie, and by following the photos you should be able to
add another great rig to your arsenal.
Firstly strip off around 12ins of your
chosen hooklink material, remove
5ins of the coating, and form the hair
loop. You then mount your chosen
bait onto the hair and tie on a 1.5mm
rig ring with a simple overhand knot.
Take your chosen long-shank hook
and position it on the hair, having
placed the point through the ring.
Next, adjust the position of the ring so
the bait is at the correct length on the
hair, and then tie the hook in that
position using a standard knotless
