Withy Pool Rig (Print)

STEP 1

These are the components that you need to tie the rig.

STEP 2

Pull off 16 inches of N-Trap Soft, strip back six inches and tie a hair loop in the end.

STEP 3

Thread your pop-up hook bait onto the loop.

STEP 4

Now thread your chosen hook on.

STEP 5

Position it close to the bait.

STEP 6

Now whip it in place, using the knotless knot.

STEP 7

Note how short the flexible hair is kept.

STEP 8

The unstripped section should start just above the eye, on the knot iself.

STEP 9

Cut 1.75in of shrink tubing.

STEP 10

Push it up so that it covers the knotless knot.

STEP 11

Steam the rig and set this curve into the shrink tubing as it cools.

STEP 12

Strip a 1cm section of coating immediately below the tubing.

STEP 13

Pinch a split shot onto the coated section.

STEP 14

Now mould some Dark Matter putty around the shot.

STEP 15

Tie a Link Loop to the coated end of the link, using a five-turn grinner knot.

STEP 16

That's the finished Withy Pool rig.
