Clipped Down Pennell Rig

This rig is similar to the clipped down rig. However, it is designed for big baits such as whole squid, large black lugworm baits and mackerel fillets. Baits of this size will flap around and potentially become tangled up during casts, and due to their size they will become seriously damaged on impact with the sea. For this reason they are presented on pennell hooks which ensure that their is a hook on either side of the large bait. The bait is also clipped behind an impact shield as this will protect the large bait when it hits the water and clipping it down in this manner makes the bait more manageable to cast. Note: when making this rig it is better to use a neoprene/rig tubing stop knot above the impact shield, rather than a crimp, as this will allow much more adjustment and movement when creating the rig and getting the hooks to meet the impact shield.
