Impact bait shields and how to attache them

Post by Reels_on_wheels » Fri Dec 21, 2007 6:32 pm

Hi folks, yes I can't help myself.
I am going to build some Pennel rigs with impact shields on them but when I bought a packet of four there is an additional piece of rubber in the packet. I did try to put it over the bottom of the shield but it seems the internal diameter is too small. Is this where it is supposed to go? If not, where does it go?
I have made just about every rig but this is my first attempt at using an impact shield. Can anyone shed any light on this situation? Am I just being stupid and something is blatantly staring me in the face?
Please forgive my ignorance but I thought I had better ask before going ahead and making a mess of things.
I have looked at many diagrams of rigs but nothing explains how to add the bait shield.
Thanks

Hi VifferRider
Thanks very much for taking the time to do this, it is really appreciated. I was on the right track but just could not get black tubing on the bottom, but I will do as you have mentioned.
This is why this is a great forum, because people take the time to do things like this especially for beginners like me.

I like the bike, I had a CBR6 and this is how I ended up in the wheelchair.
PM me and I will give you the whole story. Very simple accident but shocking outcome.

Have a great time over the festive period (this applies to everyone else as well). The help I have received on this forum has been fantastic. Even though my posts seem to be looking for answers to silly questions. I have always had a civil answer that has not been patronising.
Many thanks

If I didn't ask silly questions I'd have nothing to ask :D

I tried using one of these shields once and the hook/snood stayd clipped down when I reeled in, so i was put off from using them. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Hey Pompey, the hook will sometimes stay put but not that often if you get it right - try experimenting with the rig in a bit of deep water close in (or a pond) so you can see what is happening. Personally I often use the sinkers with their own bait clips built in for the bottom hook then "relay clips" further up for the second or third hooks. This seems to work quite well. Also, when casting, go for plenty of height - if the whole rig enters the water from an almost vertical position, the hooks are more likely to come free from the bait clips.
Very nice piece of work by Viffer, WD mate.

If this happens its because the shield is gripping the line too tight and not sliding , use half the length of silicone tube below and always use a large bead above.......................sniggle
