Pooley's PVA Bag Rig Mechanics

Ian Poole has become a master at succeeding from a range of waters, including well-known day-ticket lakes and rock-hard syndicates, yet his approach to rig construction is refreshingly simple.
This simple braided rig is testament to that and Ian uses it in his trademark solid-PVA bags. This rig incorporates the new Krank hooks and Dark Matter braid, with a small shrink-tube kicker. He uses small hook baits like a single grain of pop-up IB Corn over the top of his bag mix.
