Elliott Gray's Kontinental Rig
Elliott developed this rig to suit a very specific set of circumstances, as he explains...
"I was faced with having to cast to a treeline, in the dark, so all I wanted to have to worry about was hitting that clip correctly. Using the rig shown enabled me to concentrate solely on the cast, knowing that the rig simply wasn’t going to tangle. The stiff hook link would make sure of that and the offset shape of the hook would help wind the barbless point home, and keep it there. With the seriousness of the snags, I needed a rig that would hook the fish solidly and I was hoping that it would do just that. As it turned out, I was proven right and I've used the rig successfully elsewhere since."
