Bottom Bait Rig (Print)

STEP 1

Use a coated braid and a Wide Gape hook. Putty is essential.

STEP 2

Strip back the Hybrid's coating using a Strippa Tool.

STEP 3

Form a hair in the supple section and tighten with a Pulla.

STEP 4

Slide a small section of Silicone Tubing down the hook link.

STEP 5

Thread a bottom bait onto the hair and fix in place with a stop.

STEP 6

Carefully nick the hook point through the tubing.

STEP 7

Now slide the tubing around the bend and measure your hair.

STEP 8

Whip the hook on using the ever-faithful knotless knot.

STEP 9

Place a section of shrink tubing over the eye of the hook.

STEP 10

Steam the shrink tubing over a hot kettle. It will shrink down.

STEP 11

It will now appear neat and tidy.

STEP 12

Now attach a Link Loop using a grinner knot.

STEP 13

Wet it and pull it down tightly using a Pulla.

STEP 14

To straighten the material, hold over steam via two pulla's.

STEP 15

Roll on a large section of putty an inch or so away from the hook.

STEP 16

The final presentation in all its glory - sorted!
