Do you fish over rough ground and get fed up losing your tackle? Then you need to gear up with a Pennell pulley rig, a favourite among specimen hunters who risk all over demanding ground…
THE PULLEY RIG, sometimes called an up and over, is the ultimate rock rig for big fish taken at long range. There are a couple of variations of the pulley, but essentially this trace is for fishing over extremely tough ground. During the retrieve the weight of a hooked fish allows the sliding design to lift up the lead weight, ahead of the fish, which makes it very effective for beating bigger species that feed over rocks and thick seaweed. "The word terminal is important because eventually, you are going to lose it" No matter how clever or complicated a terminal rig design, it is often the angler's skill that ultimately determines that a rig is retrieved cleanly or not. Losing rigs and lead weights is the risk of fishing heavy ground, but the reward is maybe a better fish. However, by choosing the right rig and retrieval technique your tackle losses can be reduced. Below you will find a great selection, however, if you can,t find what you are looking for or need a bespoke rig made just get in touch.
A simple but highly effective rough ground rig. Pulley effect of the rig allowing a taking fish to pull against the lead to set the hooks. Once on the retrieve the pulley action lifts the lead clear of the seabed and the fish and hopefully clearing snags. These rigs incorporate the breakaway imp clip and release system.
