The double Paternoster rig can be fished whilst holding onto the fishing outfit and also works well when set into a holder. It is extremely productive for fishing deeper water for a variety of deeper offshore species. Simply drop the baited rig over the side, wait until it settles onto the sea floor and wait for a bite. Always remember to wait until the fish has your bait securely before striking!
