Sorry to bring this one up after so long but new to the forum.....

I've just been turned on to the long n low (I prefer the pulley version to the normal) and I have tried to dropper but to be honest, I don't get it.
Can someone tell me, really, whats the difference between using a dropper rig, or even the long and low for that matter, over using a clipped up rig??

It will do the same thing if you're worried about rays etc finding the weight, it puts the snood below the weight and far away from it.

Just a question tis all....

Ps - just to cover more rig possibilities.... How about this- I make ALL my pulley rigs the same way.
At the top, (lead link) tie on an inverted clip instead of a swivel/link;
Also, use a clip link as the sliding link (main line);
You can use this rig as either a pulley or a clipped up running ledger rig...simply clip the lead on the sliding link and the main line to the tied link.

I'll put pics up a bit later in the relevant section.. Cheers, Phil

Hi Phil and welcome to AA, as you point out there's minimal difference between the
rigs in question, it just comes down to a matter of personal preference. The only advantage over the
clipped up version you've posted later, is that the bait is less likely to blow up under distance casting as its tucked neatly behind , and in the slipstream of the lead.
A normal long and low would be even better, as lighter snoods could be used, thus giving
the fish less reason to spook. Another good variation of the L & L is to use it wishbone style allowing
a variety of baits to be used and putting a bigger scent trail into the water.
Hope this this has helped.
Tight lines RR

surly its a better rig if there's significant tidal flow such as when fishing in an estuary when your bait needs to be pinned hard to the sea bed provided you cast it slightly down tide
