Gemini do a rotten bottom clip. Basically you tie on old lead to the cip with some weak line and then slip the lead on to the clip. The whole thing then clips onto the ordinary lead link at the bottom of your rig. When it hits the water it releases the lead and bob's your fathers brother. It sounds a bit complicated but get some and you'll soon work it out.

The NESA link used to have details of cannylinks- which are an extremely effective and cheap rotton bottom link- but I cant find any reference anymore- does anybody know if these are still being made?
