Rough Ground Rig


This is a cheap and yet effective and reliable rig for anglers looking to fish over rough and snaggy ground where tackle losses are expected to be high. This rig takes the form of a simple paternoster design with a single hook. Additionally, this rig features a Cronus Weak Link Clip which allows anglers to perform simple overhead casts safely (not pendulum/power casts) and yet allows the weight to break off from the rest of the rig if it becomes snagged. See the diagram for more details on how this works.

This rig is available with a choice of four hooks to cover all situations. A size 1/0 Cronus Black Aberdeen hookis available for anglers fishing for smaller species, and a size 2/0 Kamasan B940 Aberdeen hook can be used for all-round fishing, while the other options are for a size 3/0 Kamasan B940 Aberdeen hook or a size 4/0 Cronus O’Shaughnessy hook with these choices being ideal for anglers targeting medium to larger species.
