Hi i was wondering how long i should make my rigs. I was thinking of making a few two Hook clipped down rigs for flatties and a few pully rigs for bass.

Thanks

Phil

Normally flatties can be caught close in so a clip down rig is wasted on them. Better off with a flapper for short range work, and for a pulley rig i normally allow a 10-12 inch hook length. If the tide isnt that strong i will go much longer winking

I pretty well agree with FF. One hears a lot of talk of "long flowing traces" but these are only for live baiting such as live sand eels used over a wreck so that the bait can move around and attract fish. Actually I use two hook clipped down rigs for bass with snoods of the length FF says, the fish don't seem to care.
My favourite flatty is Dover Sole of course (in the right conditions) and for them I use a running leger with a 6 inch snood.

So if i make a few two hooked clipped down rigs with 12" snoods, that would make the entire rig length of 36" approx. is this ok or do i need to make the rigs longer.

Thanks

Phil
