Following on from Pinchers thread, and after getting some top notch advice from Bristol Boy, I put my thinking cap on, and have come up with the rigs in the below picture.... Now I am not claiming that I have invented them, there are probably identical rigs around that I have not seen myself, although I did a search and couldnt find any.
The reasoning behind my bending the bits of wire etc, is that I reasoned that the hooks are best with the gape upwards, also, there are so many soft lures available that dont incorporate any built in weight, and I personally dont like using leadheads or bullets on the line in front of the hook.
I think ( hope ) that they work ok, fished with a rotten bottom between the bottom lure and sinker it may eliminate losing anything but the sinker if snagged.
Anyway, here they are, you can I think visualise how they could be be rigged, dropshot style...pretty basic
Any comments re use most welcome..
