How to build a 1-hook boat black bream rig.
Some anglers use a two-hook rig for targeting bream, but when fishing light just one hook is more sporting and better suited to the lighter spinning rod type action.
1. Begin with 60-inches of 30lb Fluorocarbon or clear mono.
3. Form a sliding stop knot using a short 4mm section of neoprene tubing passing the line through the tubing and bringing it back around and through the tubing the same way a second time. Now pull the line tight to lock the tubing in place.
By using the long length of rig body line, also the sliding stop knots, the boom can be positioned instantly tight behind the lead for fast tide conditions when the bream are hugging the seabed, but lifted up to a higher position when the tide slackens and the bream shoals are working higher up off the bottom.
The long flowing trace also adds movement to the bait and encourages bites.
