Rough Ground Rigs

Rough ground rigs are, as the name implies, designed to be used when fishing rough or heavy ground where snags will be encountered and tackle losses 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 successfully retrieved. The basic rigs in this section are made with an absolute minimum number of components meaning that there are fewer terminal tackle items to get snagged and costs are kept down if a high number of rigs are lost in a fishing session.
