Cut your snood ready to tie on and make sure if your 15 inch snood is on the bottom, the top one should be double ie. 30inch, if not a little bit more – 36 inch
Tie both snoods on to swivels – Remember the short one is at the bottom of the rig

Thread sequins or beads on and tie your hooks on
Now place your telephone wire next to the line and turn it around your snood above the sequin ( don’t turn it too many times as it needs to move) four turn should do it

Or u could use a crimp but don’t crimp it too much as again you want it to move ( it’s just a bait stop) trim it down so it looks like this

Now for the best bit. I use impact leads and this rig works well with BB clips

BB clips basically spread your bait evenly to stop the lead wobbling during the cast – You will have two baits one on either side of the lead. ‘Great bit of kit’ – Obviously with the bomber rig you have two hooks so this set up is ideal.

Place hooks clips like so

Hang your bomber rig up and pull the bottom crimp up and crimp in place. Do the same on top one – make sure you leave a bit of gap inbetween crimp and bead to let them move

And that’s your bomber rig ready to use and catch fish!!
Best to use in fast tides where there’s movement in water. One of the best rigs I use as it will cast a long way with two hooks.

Good tip
I use gemini links on top and bottom – I did use swivels on top of rigs and link on shockleader but the thing was my hook lengths (snoods) kept getting tangled up

One day I was fishing next to a lad who fishes for England and we were talking about things and told me this turn it around ( up side down)

So swivel on shockleader and link on rigs. I’ve never had that tangle again
Hope this helps some people
