    Great little guide. I’ve lost faith in tying my own rigs and gone back to ready tied rigs. Good job!

    • Ready tied rigs are most of the time tied to perfection and but can be costly depending on the how regularly you go fish fishing. It would be worth checking out a few videos on tieing rigs etc, trust me I did this when I was losing fish on my own rigs and they have been perfect ever since. Good Luck!
