CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 1

These are the bits that you'll need to tie the MkII chod.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 2

Pull off eight inches of Mouth Trap.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 3

Slide on a size-six Choddy, like this.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 4

Start to tie the knotless knot, wrapping away from the eye closure.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 5

Finish off the knotless knot by whipping up the shank.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 6

Slide a small rig ring onto the tag from the knotless knot.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 7

Slide the knot tag through the hook eye and snip off at this point.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 8

Now blob the tag end to secure the D-rig.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 9

That completes the chod section of the rig.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 10

Tie a size-11 ring swivel to the chod section, using a two-turn blood knot.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 11

Tie an six-inch section of Mouth Trap to the ring of the ring swivel with another two-turn blood knot.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 12

This is how the ring-swivel assembly should now look.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 13

Setting the length at 1.5 inches, tie the boom section to the top eye of another size-11 ring swivel.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 14

Now mould putty around the top eye of the ring swivel that is attached to the chod section.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 15

This is how the hinge section works, sitting at right angles to the chod section.

CHOD RIG MKII: STEP 16

That's the finished rig. It has much more 'play' in it than a normal chod.
