A tiny ring swivel was needed to complete the range and is ideal for creating a hinge in a stiff pop-up rig, made famous by the great Terrence Hearn himself. That rig is regarded by many as a big fish rig and is usually fished as a single bait or over small amounts of offerings.
We would couple it with our own Wide Gape pattern of hook and one of our small rig rings. Once the short, stiff pop-up section is tied we recommend you pull it very tightly over the steam to take the angle out of the stiff material as it leaves the inside of the eye of the hook.
This steaming makes that last section much straighter and the hook will then stand more upright ready for action. In more recent years, the small ring swivels have been used on a new Rotary rig, where the ring swivel is tied via the ring to end of the hook link. The point of a longshank hook is then slid through the eye of the swivel at the other end. The hook bait is usually sliding on a small rig ring between two float stops - the top one on the bend of the hook, the bottom one half way down the shank. Fished in conjunction with a pop-up, this rig is said to be almost impossible to eject and big fish men like Dave Lane have used it to great success.
