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.
Running Leger Rig Components
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
1 x Heavy duty swivel
1 x 500mm to 1 metre length 150-200lb BS snood
1 x 6/0 to 10/0 hook
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.
3. Attach the snood to the link swivel.
Boat anglers may find that using a tube boom results in fewer tangles.
