1. This is all of the terminal tackle that you are going to need to tie the utterly devastating and effective Mag-Aligner Rig.
2 You are obviously going to need some maggots for the rig. Big PVA bags of the grubs are great when casting out.
3 To start, cut off a long section of supple braid; this will give the rig lots more movement and will make the rig more effective.
4 Now attach the braid to your hook using your chosen knot – we recommend the reliable Grinner Knot.
5 Take a single imitation maggot (any colour) and pass the fat end of the maggot onto the hook as shown in the picture.
6 Put the hook through almost all of the maggot, but exit at the last ridge and start to slide it around the bend of the hook.
7 Slide the maggot all of the way around the hook and position it over the hook eye, as shown here. This is perfect; right, Step 8!
8 Take an in-line lead and cut the hard insert off where it meets the lead with a sharp pair of rig scissors like so.
9 Thread the in-line lead onto a Korda SafeZone Leader and push the swivel into the end of the hard insert.
10 Take a pair of pliers and cut another ring swivel, so that you can take the ring undamaged off the swivel as shown here.
11 Attach a Stick Clip onto the ring and slide it down the SafeZone Leader. Then slide on a helicopter bead to secure it.
12 Take a standard tail rubber and cut most of the thick end off with a sharp pair of scissors and then discard it. On to Step 13...
13 Slide the tail rubber down your hooklink and attach it to the Stick Clip. Then slide the rubber back up the link.
14 Now slide the tail rubber fully over the Stick Clip. This will stop the hooklink coming off during a long fight.
15 Tie up a large PVA bag of maggots but leave a two-and-a-half inch tail of PVA above the knot you have tied.
16 Tie the tag end of PVA to the rig at the bottom of the lead and then nick your hook into the side of the PVA bag.
