How to set-up a leader for a Chod rig
Follow these simple steps to learn how to tie a leader for a Chod rig

1 Start by taking an 18-inch length of Kable Leadcore.

2 Remove 2cms of wire to create a slack piece of sheathing.

3 Slide the No-Trace parts onto a splicing needle like so.

4 Now pull the components onto the leadcore as shown.

5 Next, follow this with a 3mm Silicone Sleeve.

6 Attach a Kwik-Link using a Two-Turn Grinner Knot.

7 It should now be looking something like this.

8 Next, cut the swivel off your lead with a pair of pliers.

9 Now attach the lead to the Kwik-Link like so.

10 Slide the silicone down over the Kwik-Link.

11 Position the plastic sleeve an inch from the bottom bead.

12 You now want to slide a ring swivel onto the leader.

13 Wet the sleeve fully and slide your bead up onto the sleeve.

14 Remove some of the wire at the other and pass the needle through.

15 Singe the tip of the sheathing with a lighter to blob the end.

16 The final rig will look like this: safe and secure.
