A good rig for rough ground work targeting sizeable fish like bass, codling, dogfish and huss. The main rig body line passes through the lower eye of a swivel with a beadeither side. A swivel is then tied to the free end which takes the hook length.
When a fish takes the bait, the hook length is pulled through the swivel eye until the bead jams against the split ring connecting to the weight. While the fish pulls on the hook length, the lead stays above the fish and out of the way of passing snags. This lifting motion often clears a snagged lead at the outset of a bite, too.
