How to Tie a Conger Running Leger

Heavy Duty Rig for Conger

The running leger has a free running weight on a boom which reduces the resistance when a fish takes the bait.

1 x Zip slider or other weight carrier

1 x 8 mm Bead

1 x Link Swivel

Approx. 4 metre length 60-80lb BS shock leader; depends upon the length of rod

The Rig Body

1. Thread the zip slider onto the shock leader followed by the bead then tie on the link swivel.

2. Tie the hook to one end of the snood and swivel to the other. If preferred these can be crimped in place.

A sliding or tube boom
