Rough Ground Rigs

Rough ground rigs are, as the name implies, designed to be used when fishing rough or heavy ground where a number of snags will be found and tackle losses will be expected. These rigs incorporate rotten bottoms or weak link releases which allow snagged weights to be broken off and the rest of the rig (and any hooked fish) to be retrieved successfully. The basic rigs in this section are made with an absolute minimum number of components, meaning that there is less metalwork to get snagged, and less components mean that costs are kept down if a high number of rigs are lost in a fishing session.
