The Claw rig is a very effective bottom bait rig. With no shrink tube or rigs rings its also very simple to tie.
Remove roughly 4 inches of coating from the Korda Hybrid stiff hooklink and tie a small overhand loop in the stripped end.
Now thread a 3mm section of Silicone tubing onto the hooklink.
Then pass the hook point through the silicone tubing towards the loop tied in step 1. Make sure not the snag the hookpoint in the braid on the way through as this could damage the hooklink.
Thread the hooklink through the back of the eye and then thread your choosen hookbait onto the hair and secure it with a bait stop. Set the hair with about a 1cm gap between the hookbait and hook.
Now whip the hooklink up the shank of the hook 6 times before passing it through the back of the eye to create a knotless knot.
Next thread two of the small Korda Sinkers onto the hooklink. It is easier the strip a small amount of coating off the end of hooklink as the coating makes it too thick to get the sinkers on.
Tie a figure of eight knot in the end of the hooklink.
Double over the end of the hooklink and create a loop like so….
Then pass the end of the doubled over loop through the loop just created….
Moisten the knot and pull it tight.
Position the Korda Sinkers evenly apart along the hooklink and gently steam it straight over a kettle.
The rig is now ready to be attached to your lead setup and cast out.
Due to the stiffness and nature of this rig it is best fished over firm/hard lakes beds.
