Paternoster Rig Variations
In this video, Che Carson demonstrates how to tie a couple of variations of the popular Paternoster Rig. This extremely versatile fishing rig is used in numerous applications such as deep sea bottom bouncing, beach fishing, fishing from piers, squid fishing, etc.
Paternoster Rigs can be tied comfortably in mono or fluorocarbon leader up to 100lb or so, and are a ‘must know’ rig for any salt water angler. An alternative to using 3-way swivels is to tie dropper loops, however they do not retain the same strength as with using 3-way swivels.
