HOOKLENGTH : Rod Hutchinson`s THE EDGE 15 lb (it
sinks nicely and is very reliable!)
I use unwaxed dental floss for the hair
RIGS : I use the Helicopter Rig with tubing to protect
the line. I also use tungsten putty around the tubing to make it
stay along the bottom.
TERMINAL TACKLE :I use the Line aligner rig with the
hooklength coming from the silicon tubing.
I fish pop-ups ALL the time , but fish them close to the bottom !
FOOTNOTE : The picture above was taken in 1990 and i still
have the much the same tackle today !
I dont tend to change the main parts of my tackle very much , tending
to stick with what i know and can afford!
