How to Tie a Modified Paylake Rig

Recommended Posts

I don't get it:

Why use Knotless, if you don't need a hair?  Why use any snell knot, if you use an aligner?  Why use a weak, simple granny knot for the loop?

There are better, stronger options:

comfortably tie a proper loop knot, FIRST; then cut off from the spool w/ zero waste; then, slide on the aligner & tie a Fish-N-Fool to the hook eye

Both ways can be effective. That rig is easy an effective and has caught me plenty of big fish. I've never had a problem with the sturdiness of this rig. If you want to tie it a different way then feel free to. Nobody said you had to do it this way but thanks for the comment. Good luck on the bank!

Nice video...just shows there are many ways to get a carp on the line.

 

Whatever works for the individual is all that matters!
