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 five hook sizes to cover all situations. A size 1/0 Cronus Silver Aberdeen hook is available for anglers fishing for smaller species, and a size 2/0 or a size 3/0 Kamasan B940 Aberdeen or can be used for all-round fishing, or a size 4/0 Cronus O’Shaughnessy hook or 6/0 Kamasan B940 Aberdeen can be used to target larger fish.
