The LSX Rig (Print)

STEP 1

First, whip a Longshank X to some unstripped N-Trap Soft, using a whipping knot like the snell, or domhoff.

STEP 2

Now secure the hook in place, using a knotless knot.

STEP 3

Slide a rig ring onto the tag, like this.

STEP 4

Now pop the tag back through the hook eye, trapping the ring and forming a long D.

STEP 5

Slide some shrink tube over the knot, making sure to thread the tag from the D down the tubing too.

STEP 6

Tie a Link Loop to the hook link, using a grinner knot.

STEP 7

Shrink the tube down over a steaming kettle and set this angle into it as it cools.

STEP 8

This is the arrangement you should now have.

STEP 9

Strip the coating from the braid just below the tubing, for about an inch.

STEP 10

Squeeze a split shot onto the tag and trim the excess.

STEP 11

Finally, cover the shot with putty to help balance out your popup hook bait.

STEP 12

This should be the end result!
