How To Tie The Multi-Rig

This is my favourite rig to use, I would say that 98% of the time this is the one I am casting out mainly with a pop-up but equally as happy with a wafter or bottom bait. I just have so much conference in this rig, it sits on the lakebed like a claw and resets perfectly if somehow ejected.

The components I use are

  • Fox Cortex matt in 25lb
  • Nash Fang X size 7
  • Taska Bait Spike (for pop-ups) or a size 11 Korda Ring Swivel
  • Korda large Sinker
  • Korda or Fox Anti-Tangle sleeve
  • Dental floss to help thread the loop through the eye of the hook
What you need to to tie the Multi-Rig

What you need to to tie the Multi-Rig

First thing to do is tie a figure of eight loop knot about an inch long, make sure it is secure and that you moisten it as you pull it tight

Take a Nash Fang X hook (check that it is sharp) and thread a small length of dental floss through the eye of the hook, then pass the end of the floss through the loop and back through the eye of the hook, take hold of both ends of the floss and pull the loop through the eye(make sure you are pulling the loop from the front to the back of the hook as shown in the picture)

make sure you pull the loop through from the front to the back of the hook

make sure you pull the loop through from the front to the back of the hook

Thread the loop through a Taska Bait Spike or Korda Ring Swivel

Slide the loop over the hook point back towards the eye to create the “D”

Strip back 5mm of outer coating just behind the loop knot to create a supple pivot point

Slide on a Korda large sinker and place at the end of the coated section

this is what you Multi-Rig should look like

Add an anti-tangle sleeve and tie another figure 8 loop night to create your ideal rig length in my case around 7-8 inches

The last thing to do is to carefully steam the link straight making sure that you do this evenly along the entire length

That is the rig tied and almost ready to go, In my next blog I will show you how I balance the bait and use PVA nuggets to protect the “D” and stop tangles (and also help you to know that it is bang on the spot)

I have had great success with this rig using an RG Baits 365 pop up in both pink and white

All the best
