Anyone recommend someone who sells homemade rigs?

Post by Tomo1 »

Hi All, can anyone recommend a reasonable priced rig tyer some of the commercial ones are a bit pricey and i know that the home made ones are generally of better quality. Its not that i am lazy but i work long hours and dont get much time to sit and tie my own. :-/

I wouldn't even look on ebay,, Al's down woolston supplies his bloke with the best gear then sels them at dumb prices, not worth the risk of going anywhere else?

Hi Mate,

Buy a book or get some pattern from the web and make your own. Once you've done a few your be fine. Start with 2 hook flappers, make sure you use 60 lb for main body then 20-25lb for the snoods. Don't make them to long about 4ft for the main body and 8-12" for the snoods. Use size 2 hooks and make sure you add a bait stop.

Good luck.

I can also vouch for Art-Tackle on e-bay.

I started sea angling in November, having been a puddle chucker all my life.
The way I got into it was to buy a few ready made ones, then copy the patterns. You can save yourself the initial purcahse and go to the Gemini-tackle.co.uk website where they have rig descriptions, right down to what bits you need and how long a length of line etc.

I now make all my own. Use Ultima Memory-X for the snoods and rig body (which I also get from e-bay). Gemini links and other bits, and hooks from the local tackle shop.

Took me 2 hours to make 6 2 hook flapper rigs last week. Thats a lot of knots. I find the grinner or uni knot works for me.

You'll also need a crimper tool.

Shout if you need more info.

tight lines

Call me an anorak (yep, that's my striped woolly hat hanging up on the back of the door) but I find tying rigs quite therapeutic.

Keeps me busy when HID is watching soaps B-) B-)
