Bouncing Betty is an unfortunate name given to a snag free weight by European anglers, unfortunate because it is also the nickname of an appalling piece of ordnance designed to blow your bits off. It is however an invaluable piece of equipment for bottom bouncing, drop shotting and generally drifting small live / dead baits for Zander and perch on big rivers. Price...
Ryder Livebait Traces:The Ryder hook originated in Europe specifically for livebaiting. The small hook is used to attach the livebait by the top lip leaving the larger hook canted off to one side to hook the predator. These traces are made using Mustad 35890 pattern hooks and our own 19 strand Nova silk wire. We have been experimenting with these since early 2006 and have had excellent hookup rates, zero deep hooking and more than 90% of pike caught are hooked in the scissors. These traces are so good that those of us here at Sovereign who livebait no longer use trebles at all. These are manufactured in Europe for us, (hook sizes and wire strengths listed below), all traces are 40cm in length with a wide bound loop at each end for maximum articulation.
Item 4 primarily a deadbait rig. The big single hook is inserted through both lips of the deadbait allowing you to troll or wobble the bait. Extensively used in Ireland and Holland.
