    In the process of making a short series of video clips of how to make and use the rotten bottom rig I have been shown and use (not taking credit for the design as the original has been around years, just a couple of my own tweaks ) watch the main forum for the post under "how to:rotten bottoms".

    Cheers jellyworm.

    Look forward to seeing that.

    It would be intresting to see different how many forms of rotten bottoms there are, I guess most will be variations on the two listed in the above link.

    Excellent link. Some of the best fishing down here in the south west is over rough ground, and the potential to lose a whole heap of tackle is phenominal. Rocky bottom setups, whichever ones you choose, are are a must if you don't want to have to look into a second mortgage to replace the amount of tackle you would otherwise lose!

    I too would be interested in finding out how many different types of rocky bottoms anglers have invented. There must be absolutely loads. :)

    When I was a keen rock angler I always used the rig using a wire and wooden bead from a car bead seat. are they still in use?

    SAGE always trying...... some say very trying !!!!!

    i use a normal lead clip upside down, the strong wire ones with the bait clip, just tie weaker line to eye of clip and hang lead on the inverted bait clip, works everytime and can withstand a very powerful cast
