Step by step guide to building a 1-hook attractor shore plaice rig.
2. Slide on a Breakaway Impact Shield followed by a 3mm rig bead and crimp. Crimp this in place above the lead link leaving about 1½-inch for the Shield to slide in.
3. Slide on a rig crimp, a rig bead, a size 10 swivel, another bead and a crimp. Leave these loose for now. Finish the rig body with a size 4 rolling swivel.
4. The hook trace is a 24-inch length of 20lb line. Slide on alternate yellow and black beads three of each and tie on a size 2 Kamasan B940 Aberdeen hook. Above the beads tie on a Powergum stop knot to stop the beads sliding up the hook trace during the cast.
5. Put the hook in the clip of the Bait Guard, now slide the rig crimp below the hook trace swivel up the rig body line until the trace comes just tight, then crimp in place. This gives you perfect tensioning of the hook trace with the hook in the Impact Shield. The sliding Impact Shield being free to slide can take up any stretch in the hook trace caused by casting pressures.
