I’m not an expert on catching rig, so it may be trus that its unusual to see them caught on squid, but here’s a picture of one which was caught on squid at the Brighton pier. I don’t know the guy who caught it, I just took a photo of him because I had never seen a rig caught at the time. Incidentally, the water was rough and dirty that day and he cought it off the end of the pier, but right at the base of the pylons.

My brother in law used to fish the pier a lot and tells me that he caught the occaisional rig using squid too.
