The hair rig is applied automatically when you use boilies as bait, no need to adjust or add anything in settings.


The loop rig is applied/changed in your rod settings.

Hello @LagerLout, getting bites is not just about putting points in your skilltree, but also depends on a lot of other things, like fishingspot, kind of bait, groundbait, weather- en windconditions etc.

Sometimes one rig will produce bites while another rig won`t, all depending on these factors. So keep trying different spots, baits etc. and you will find the way to make the methodrig work for you.

HI LagerLout

Looks like atm the loop rig works best for bottom fishing at Bear Lake. As you can't use PVA on Method a lot of players are using GB in the feeder and PVA stick on loop rig with very good results.

Hi,

 

Can you please explain the differences between a loop and a paternoster rig ?
It says loop is used to fish in the current but I don't see the point.

Thanks

@Dharn_RF4 On a loop rig the feeder has a little room (in the "loop"), so when a fish takes the bait it can swim a little before the weight of the feeder kicks in and hooks the fish. A paternosster rig has a fixed weight, so the fish takes the bait and instantly "feels" the weight of the feeder. For cautious fish, and in currents, the loop rig is preffered for the little slack caused by the  loop wich also gives your bait a more natural behaviour under water.

Thanks for the detailed reply, Butcher.
I've got 3 points in paternoster. Should I keep them or reset them asap in loop which seems to be an upgraded version of the first skill ?
