What is the best way to set these up so that it provides a weak link in the terminal tackle,while retaining a safety factor in it on the cast?
Thanks, Mick

there is a clip you can use:

Image

just place on you end clip,where you would normally put your sinker,tie a length of light line(about six inches) 5-6lb bs onto main rig body or end clip and then onto your sinker,no fancy knot needed (a four turn blood will suffice).

tips for NOT losing your sinker and gear on rocky marks:

1) use higher bs mainline,say 20-30lb then reduce your snood strength to about 10-12lb as most snags are caused by hook and snood getting caught.

2) use as fine a wire gauge hook as possible (mustad do a good range)

3) try and use pulley rigs if possible

4) if its a deffo sinker snag,then slacken off your main line and dip your rod tip down for a few seconds,this can release sinker by allowing the wave action of backwash pull and clear your gear out then tip right up and reel like the clappers!!

5) avoid yanking into a snag when you feel your gear go tight as you will only lodge your gear even further making #4 more difficult to perform

using these methods the need for a rotten bottom is not always needed,and then can be added to your rigs in situ if its a very snaggy mark.

hope this helps

Andy

most reliable method i have found is to tie an over hand knot in the bottom of your rig then tie a length of your rotton bottom above the loop using a 3 turn water knot at the other end of your weak line tie on a pear shaped link clip the lead to this then pass the loop in the end of the trace through the pear link and hold it in place with a small nail or tack this rig releases every time and is very cheap!
