I am a complete newbie to sea fishing and am trying teach myself about tie my own sea fishing rigs. I have been told I am best of buying to ready made rigs and copying these initially. I have searched online and the selection is enormous. The three leading companies appear to be Moonfleet Angling, Mermaid Tackle and Fitzmartyn Seagull rigs, all seem to use silicon sliders for their rigs ? Does anyone know which company I am best off using ???

If you check in the lefthand side of the page and click on terminal tackle you will find several rigs on there. You would be best served using a 2 or 3 hook flapper to start with and use 60lb mono as the main body and your hook lengths made of 15 or 20lb mono.

Oh by the way a warm welcome to the forums

ultimauk have a website and a basic rig making guide,that i have found to be very useful.

and you only have to learn 2 knots for rigs,grinner for your hooks and the half blood for rig body,its a very simple guide. (oh and a stop knot)

its worth going to your tackle shop and spending 20 just on rig making bits,i done this and have never bought a rig since.

best of luck

Andy

nope big grin , grinner for hooks and half bloods for tying line to anything else.

have a look at moonfleet anglings line of rigs,
http://www.moonfleet-angling.com/moonfleet_shore_rigs.html
they arent the cheapest but they are the BEST by a country mile.
get one of each of these, and they will do for all occasions and conditions.
3 hook flapper,
2 hook cascade (also known as a 2 hook clip down)
pulley rig.
have a look at the components and head to your local tackle shop then and buy the varius bits and pieces to make your own copies of the bought ones.

I would only add that eventually you will find it best to make your own rigs as you can then include features of your own invention as most of us do. The two hook clip down rig that I employ most often is entirely my own creation and you won't find anything like it on the market.

Why buy a rig to copy it? Look on the net, there are always detailed pictures of rigs and great instructions. I avoid all rig making companies as once you realise how easy it is to make your own rigs and the satisfaction you get catching on your own rigs is great. The internet is a powerful tool when it comes to rig making. There is every design going, just takes a little searching winking

In reality there are only 2 rigs: the paternoster, and running leger. All the fancy ones are just variants of the first.

You don't even need to buy many bits and pieces to tie a fishable rig. Take a piece of line (same strength as shockleader), tie as many dropper loops in it as you want hooks, tie your snoods to the loops. The only other essentials are clips and swivels (or split rings) to attach lead and leader. Rubber tubing is good to slip over dropper loops - mini stand-off booms.

For a clipped-down rig, paper clips work pretty well.

Easy - or it would be if there were many fish about.
