this is my second year surf casting. last year i worked on setup and learning the basics. This year I want to get more distance. My problem is when i cast my bait 'helicopters' which could take the head off any low flying birds. I seen articles about rigs designed to stop this but nothing on where to get them and/or how to rig them. when I ask anyone the've all said they don't know. any info would be appreciated plus you would be helping save a bird.
it is called a breakaway rig? I think the term i used was clip down rig but I got that term from a new zealand website so that is probaly why everyone looked at me funny when I asked them about it. I appreciate the reply. my friend want to get out there and I want to be prepared. thanks
Maybe they are called something else in other places Breakaway markets them as well as their specialize sinkers. This will be my first year using the rig after many seasons with short leaders on the hooks.
