I sometimes use a sliding trace off the beach, just clip it on the line and let it slide, good for Bass.

if its just cliped on and sliding along the main line, how can you strike? does the bass hook itself?

absolutly brilliant rig!
I caught several garfish who hooked them selves and a 1lb wrasse on the bottom and was well chuffed :D

Looks a great idea for a rig.

What stops the float rig from sliding down the main rig and tangling up?

Does a large 8mm bead at the shock leader swivel stop the snap link sufficiently or do you use something else?

Just asking as it looks like a good way to improve your chances and wouldn't mind giving it a go in the future.

Cheers
