    It is not essential to use beads on a pulley rig, but they are inexpensive so I include them. There are cheap bulk ones on trademe. They are around $12 for 500 beads.

    I might have to bang some of these pulley rigs together and give them a whirl.They would be ideal for longer casts wouldnt they?

    I spose these rigs would defeat the purpose of using BOS’s?

    Also the line between the sinker and the trace,how long would that be in comparison to the trace line? And is it meant to be heavier than your mainline?

    Looking at these rigs im thinkin they would be ideal for snapper from the shore in the sounds.Only one way to find out.

    Yeah, they do help with distance. Especially if you use a bait clip to prevent the bait from swinging around during flight.

    They work well with BOS. I use pulley rigs 90% of the time.

    with a standard overhead cast, you should get around 20% extra distance.

    using the off the ground or brighton/unitec its possible to get a bait out over 100metres.

    Just be thinking about the elephant fish.

    Considering getting a pile of Kina, Mussles and cockles and creating a burley. Then head down to one of the surf beaches, on Marfells it would be possible to walk the burley out 20-30m…. But the others would require the use of the yak. Deposit the burley (shells and on) then catch all of the Moki, Gurnards, Snappers and elephants as they feed on the trial.

    Bugger, might of just given away a awesome plan.

    I’ve heard of people walking out at low tide and dropping paint tins full of berley with holes drilled in them for burley pots.

    I guess you could just tie a rope to it for retrieval… Its something I’ve thought of giving a go but never actually got around to it.

    Its a good idea I might try it out at hampden etc. perfect spot, a shallow bit i can walk out onto in waders to deposit the berley. Then leave and cast out my rod. Might get an ele, or a rig or anything else around.
