Is 15lb too light for the snoods, in all honesty I can't see myself catching a cod over 15lb is there a reason I should use 20 or 30 lb for the snoods.

    Don't wish to appear to steal the thread but as it's about rigs for cod thought I'd ask

    15lb snoods on a pulley rig are dangerous. If you're clipping them down for casting you are putting the full load on 15lb line. Ideally snoods should be the same as the rig body but I've used 40lb amnesia before without any problems. Hook patterns should also be strong as you can straighten them out

    Thanks for that wippyzippy. never thought of that. Changed the snoods to 30lb last night, so will have to use 3oz grippers and hope for the best till I can get some more line. Have some 60lb powerflex which I use for my shock leaders but it just seemed too springy tried to stretch it but it wouldn't stay straight. Will get some 40lb amnesia.

    You will be lucky to get a 3oz to the bottom let alone hold bottom in any kind of tide movement, I'd just use the 60lb powerflex for your snoods as well seeing as you got some, the weight of your bait attached should straighten the snood
    Nice 1 on the pics shirleycodlin never used powergum before but will give it a try

    This is the rig i use, http://www.fitzmartyn.co.uk/index.ph...1/7?Itemid=109 with this one you know that the bait is hard on the bottom as against some pulleys where i'm sure the snood just wafts in the current and will cast just as well as a pulley.

    For the snood i'll use 40lb greased weasel shockleader. Makes a good ray rig as well.

    I don't like those plastic bait shields, use a lead with bait clips on or these Ebay Item number: 200634010096 good for big baits as whole squid is no problem on them, much cheaper and easier to rig up,

    im with shirl powergum better if you cant tie this use silicone/neoprene sliding crimps instead ..hooks for me are small codling min 4/0 pennel with bait to match and if cahnce of 8lb plus fish its 8/0 pennels as for snood line 60lb clear with 80lb rig bodies

    ive used pulleys for years and had some great fish on them but year before last when most of my beach cod were over 6lb with a good few doubles too i had to stop using pullies as i missed a lot of fish but as soon as i went to fixed pat it was like flicking a switch and hardly lost/missed a fish from then on!
