Pulley Rig

The pulley rig is a unique rig which greatly increases the chances of successfully reeling in a hooked fish over a rocky and snaggy seabed. The design of the rig means that it works like a pulley when a fish is reeled in with the weight rising upwards (and away from snags). The picture above in Option One shows a simple and cheap – yet effective – pulley rig with a simple rig clip, while Option Two shows a more complicated pulley rig with the bait clipped down behind an impact shield and a Gemini Breaker fitted so that the weight will become detached if it becomes stuck in a snag.
