So a couple quick questions:

1 - When you burn the tag end, how long is the tag end you are burning – I normally leave about 13mm of mono and pinch the line very tight between my fingers so that the braid stays away from any heat.


2 - Are you tying your half hitches nice and snug up against the wraps after going over the balled end – everything is done under tension and all half hitches are snugged tight.


3 - My immediate thought on reading your PR troubles was what you mentioned above, and thats having smaller fish attach the PR knot.... mmmm strawberry lip ice; I am sure those little leather jackets would like that even more.


Anyway, each to their own I guess, and I personally love the PR Knot, and will use it with confidence for sure as its proven itself to me....Nepps I always like to try something new and am actively seeking new ways to improve my rigging; I was deterred in the past by the cost of wind-ons, but making them yourself is cheap and actually very simple with the right tools so until something new comes along it will be wind-on for me.


On another note, I have figured out a way to significantly boost the strength of Assist rigs using Kevlar, basically doubling the strength which I'll shoot a tutorial of soon and show you... certainly no rocket science, but definitely the way I will be rigging for the tropics from now on... took a little brain storming, but is super simple and works….well come on then, I only have two more nights to tie up wind-on’s and make some more assist hooks!

Hi Blaasoppie great report and photos.

What do you charge for practical lessons on jigging and rigging in Madagascar. I think about a week of practical lessons would help and many refresher courses thereafter!!!


Got the jigging bug big time can't think of anything else but jig jig!!!

Howzit Ulua,

A fellow Graph-caster i see; lessons are free, you will get a crash course.

The only thing that worries me about jigging is what if i end up in a place that i cant jig; ill go off the rails!

Howzit Guys,

Going jigging after work tonight, am going to explore a new area just east of my usual jigging spots (indicated by the black flags) and am going to camp at a new lagoon so apart from the thunderstorms that are hanging around it should be a good weekend.

  

Did not have time to make any more fancy assists this week, but did make up a few more wind-on leaders and also made a wind-on for my graph-cast 1 spinning rod so i am keen to see how a wind-on casts.

Cool on the camera, most important piece of equipment; you don't often get to go jigging so good photo's are a must.

I modified my transducer bracket last night as it was facing up too much last time and i was getting a lot of noise on the screen; the back end of the ducer is now lower than the front by about 6mm which is how it should be so TV should be good tomorrow.
