This Halibut Anti Twist Rig is designed for fishing for Halibut in Norway with a dead bait. There are three sizes of Norway Anti Tangle leads available, 250g, 300g,350g and 450g. There are times when the current is exceptionally strong and you may need to join two Halibut Anti Twist Leads together with an extra strong split ring to get you bait down to the bottom, with our leads, you have the option to joint two different sizes together to get the right depth. Equally, at times you do not need 350g (12oz) and these leads give you the option to go down to 300g (10oz) or 250g (8oz). THIS IS THE CHROME VERSION.
These Anti Twist Leads have been coated with a chip resistant luminous coating which really glows when charged and will take being hit against the rocks, bashed on the bottom in fact thrown again a concrete floor as hard as you like. You may scuff it, you may turn the wires eyes over if you throw it hard enough but you WILL NOT chip off the coating. They are a little more expensive than the standard powder coated and baked version (£1.00 each) as the process takes longer to apply but in my opinion it is well worth it. My next trip will only see me taking the Anti Twist Rigs finished in Anti Chip luminous coating.
The Halibut Anti Tangle Rigs are supplied fully assembled with 6ft of 150lb high quality supple mono, tied with a Domhoff knot (a knot that gets tighter the more it is pulled) to a 600lb b.s. swivel at one end and a 4/0 6x treble at the other (Mustad or VMC). Simply tie your main line to the swivel and you are ready to fish. Attach your Coalfish / Mackerel bait to the trebles ensuring the top treble goes in through the top lip and out of the bottom lip ensuring the mouth stays closed and the second treble down the flank. (the rig can be double crimped if you prefer, just let me know your requirements)
The Anti Twist Rig with Anti Chip coating comes in four colours, Lumi Green, Lumi Blue, Lumi Orange and Lumi Pink. There will be photos on this page shortly clearly showing the leads in daylight and `glowing in the dark`, I have retain the services of a photographer to take the `glowing in the dark` shots for me.
(PLEASE NOTE, LUMI BLUE COATING IS OFF WHITE IN NATURAL DAYLIGHT, ONCE CHARGED AND IN THE DARK IT GLOWS BLUE, ghostly blue !!!!!!)
When you get these Anti Twist Rigs with Anti Chip coating, simply leave them on the side in artifical light on them for an hour or so, turn them over and round occasionally so the full surface area get hit but the artifical light then take them in the loo or a dark garage without putting the light on and you will see them glowing for you. When you go to Norway, take the leads back to your cabin at the end of the day and leave thing on the side, the table etc in artifical light and give them a really good charge for the next day.(don`t forget the bloddy things when you go out the next day !!!)
Please see the additional images / colour chart below, you can clearly see the four colours available in the options list.
We have added the option to use a 5X - 6/0 Live Bait Hook and a 5X - 4/0 Treble. This offers slightly different presentation and reduces down to one treble in the Halibuts mouth.
Later this year we will have Halibut Anti Twist leads in larger sizes 600g and 750g. If this is of interest to you please let me know.
For Flouro colour options, let me know your requirements.
If you look at the Water Wolf footage on You Tube of Halibut in Norway attacking the bait, you can clearly see the Halibut more often than not attacking the bait from the side and not from behind. Believe me, you realy want a strong hook hold when you hook a halibut, they fight so hard and the excitment levels go through the roof as the make off on run after run with your ratchet screeming, I can only discribe it as unbelieveable !!
Don`t get caught out with the wrong rigs, take it from me, you won`t regret it.
