Can't see how this differs from a standard running ledger?
Hi JJ, The bait is going to go up, it must of stretch the snood and tipped the clip?.My mate did one and on a powerful cast the bait flew off , not once but twice. I,m not sure why the bait flew off , any way he put a fix pat rig on and all was ok. Best thing to do is to try it you might get along with the rig.
Why not take the snood over the clip and down to a lead clip, would be more aerodynamic , would be longer but only run as far as the swivel clip again.View attachment 1028977
Could I get people's thoughts on this rig? It's basically an upside down pulley rig, but would it fish like a running ledger? Obviously the amount of "run" would be down to the length of the pulley but would it work? Anyone use anything like this?
I'm glad i'm not the only one that doesn't like up and overs, I don't like them either for the same reason as you. I stick to pulleys for most of my fishing but use pulley droppers for Rays.Agree with dodgy, you will only get a reduction in rig tangling and your snood /bait spinning during the cast which is why I tried it in the first place , i cant stand unclipped rigs , no confidence , I tried the up and over and found no benefit over a good ol pulley , it just had more early release issues , if you want a long snood try a 4ft snood off a pulley , if you fish cliffs piers or boats , ledger it is
But if it's clipped it won't be flapping about during the cast, making it more streamlined?You probably won't gain much distance as the bait will be in the same place it was if you had left the rig un clipped.
If you cast OTG, simple up and over rigs (as in the diagram) and imps are not really practical as more often than they will unclip when the rig is laid on the ground.Up and overs running ledgers are great if you have a smooth pendulum or OTG cast, Hatteras and OHT not so much.
My up and over rigs never unclip and never come back tangled.
The trick is to tighten the length of line from the hook to up and over clip and pull down on the lead so it's nice and tight.
Adding 3 silicone beads between the weight and swivel will keep the hook length away from the lead and eliminate any chance of a tangle.
As for you rig, IMPS are arguably the best bait clips out there. I don't know what clip you would use but unlikely to be as good.
