Well apart from making my own rigs, no. After saying that I do have my own way so that the rigs can be stripped down quickly and easily and that the hooks can be changed on the ris in secs. Go to tips and tricks and check Quick Change. keith

ive made rod rests, 120z weights with groundbait cages, bait clips, and for floats im trying widgets out of beer cans, what next i hear you say. :D Oh and i make all my own weights with and without grips, the grips are made from old bird and hamster cages. ;) most things i make cost nowt, or just pennies. and hopefully i will be putting all my ideas on here soon. have to take pics etc and its gonna take time.

i make my own home made weights from tesco shopping trollys , its a right ****er to cast out but ive mastered it now , you push the trolly out at low tide with rigs line attacted and wait till high tide ,it works really well until you get a bite :-O :D .

also malteasers are great for bait as it melts in the fishes mouth and not on your hands :> .
