How to tie the Clone rig step by step
Follow these simple steps to learn how to tie the Clone rig

1. Tie the hook on using a simple Knotless Knot, with between 6 and 8 wraps neatly abutted and the hooklink exiting the inside of the hook eye.

2. Thread a large Covert Rig Ring onto the tag left from the Knotless Knot. You will attach your hookbait to this rig ring later.

3. Create a ‘D’ in the monofilament by passing it back through the eye of the hook and ‘blobbing’ the end with a lighter.

4. The hook and ‘D’ should look a little like this. A nice tidy ‘D’ that sits squarely on the back of the hook shank.

5.Create a Non Slip Loop Knot at the lead end of the hooklink. Trim off the tag 2-3mm from the knot and blob the tag that’s left to secure.

6.The finished rig. If you use a slow (balanced) sinking hookbait the rig will always lay out nicely and reset if a fish samples it.
