Pulley Dropper Bolt Rig

Postby Rushy » 19 Nov 2012, 18:20

This rig is a variation of the popular Pulley Rig.

It's a similar set up to a pulley to start with.....
Image



But the snood length is attached to a link which runs up and down the rig body......
Image


You clip this rig down and put the tension in by clipping the swivel eye onto the clip with the snood on......
Image


Like so.....
Image


You've then got enough tension to clip your hooks down
Image

Image


So clipped down it looks like this....
Image

Image

Image

You can use an impact shield to clip your hooks to, instead of the gemini clip in the pictures


After the cast, when it all unclips on impact, the snood slides down to the weight and acts in a similar fashion to a pulley rig, keeping the weight out of any snags as you reel in your hooked fish
Image


This is a very good Ray rig, as the length of the snood makes it easier for them to drop onto the bait without the weight getting in the way, unlike the normal pulley rig.
Also, there is less slack to take up than with a normal pulley rig, which in theory should improve your hook ups.

Crackin rig for clean to mixed ground,I like em on the Bristol Channel,Chesil Beach cleanish areas but I'm not a fan if I'm fishing over shallow reefs /broken ground as I lose to many snoods as its dragging below the lead on the retrieve,thats where the normal Pulley is king for my fishing spots anyway.
Top Ray Rig though with a 5 foot dropper.... :fishing:

excellent pictorial... :victory:

Great how to Rushy, certainly an excellent rig for nailing bait on the bottom away from the lead for skate and rays.
you mention nothing of line strengths but guess would have to be at least 10x lead for snood and main, as is all under pulley tension when casting, ie 5oz lead--- 50lbs line.
on a theme here is a diagram of a PULLEY LONG and LOW, which gives a long snood nailed to bottom almost like a clipped short running ledger. This has caught me some good size sting and snub nose rays.
