The Blowback Rig

20lb Coated hooklink (40cm)
Reflective rig rings (‘O’ shaped)
Shrink tube (2cm)
Anti-tangle sleeve
Quick change swivel (size 8)
Bait stop
Pop-up, boilie or corn

Step 1:

Measure 40cm of hooklink, then strip back about 2 cm of the coating.

Then tie an overhand loop to create the hair rig.

Place your chosen bait onto the hair and secure with a bait stop.

Step 2:

Slip on a rig ring about 2.5 cm from the end of the loop, the tie an overhand loop to ‘lock’ the ring in place.

Step 3:

Slide on your hook, entering the eye the side of the hook point.

Your rig should begin to look something like this:

Step 4:

To tie the hook, we are going to use a knotless knot.

Start by wrapping the line 7 times around the shank of the hook then thread the line back down through the eye.

Now it’s time to slide the 2cm shrink tube down the hook length but first make a small slit in the shrink tube so the line can exit slightly.

You can now slide this over the hook eye so the knot is covered and secure.

Step 6:

We suggest steaming the shrink tube so it will become tighter. You can also create an aggressive angle like the picture above.
Next, slide on the anti-tangle sleeve threading the line through the thinnest part.
Finally, tie your size 8 quick link swivel to the coated hook length using a double overhand knot, making sure you tighten with a hook puller.
Slide the anti-tangle sleeve over the swivel and you’re ready to fish!
Using the quick link is handy so you change your rig faster and easier!
 
Let’s have a look at the finished blowback rig.
