Set Up A Lead Clip Mechanics

The lead clip is among the most simple of all lead systems. It's reliable and useful in so many different situations. It can be set to discharge the lead on the take, or only to discharge the lead if a fish becomes snagged or weeded up.

This simple sequence will show you how to set up a Hybrid Lead Clip - the most popular of our lead clip designs. The beauty of the Hybrid clip is that the ring swivel is moulded into the body - it cannot pull out, even under extreme pressure, so that lead will always discharge when you want it to.
