Fishing method

The interchangeable Paternoster rig is designed to target an extremely large variety of species. It may be fished whilst holding onto the fishing outfit and also works well when set into a holder. It is extremely productive for casting long distance or fishing deeper water for a variety of small to medium sized species.  Simply cast the baited rig out into the desired location, wait until it settles onto the sea floor and wait for a bite. Leaders and hook styles and sizes can be varied with this rig to suit most species and conditions! Always remember to wait until the fish has your bait securely before striking!
