How to tie Elliott Gray's bottom bait rig
This rig is deadly - as proven in Below The Surface. Follow these steps to learn how to tie Elliott's bottom bait rig

1 To tie Elliott’s rig you will need the following bits and pieces.

2 Start off by removing a 15-inch length of N-Trap hooklink.

3 Remove six-inches of coating, form a Hair loop and attach the bait.

4 Now position a ring three-quarters of an inch above the bait.

5 Position the ring at the bottom of the shank, where it starts to curve.

6 Now whip a Three-Turn Knotless Knot in order to secure it all in place.

7 Pierce a 1cm length of tubing and then pass the needle out the other end.

8 Position it over the hook’s eye so the hooklink exits inline with the point.

9 Use the steam from a kettle to shrink the tubing down so it’s secure.

10 It’s now ready to rock: and as proven in Below The Surface, it’s deadly.
