Wreck and reef drift fishing using a rotten bottom

Wreck and reef drifting using a rotten bottom rig setupTip for the newcomers to wreck and reef fishing on the drift and save on mass tackle loss or at least reduce the amount lost to the wrecks or jaggy reef.

I use just ordinary elastic bands in the sizes shown on this image and they give way when the weight is caught up. There are a number of options for the rotten bottom link which can be garden wire tie, lower breaking strain mono ie about 12lb but this method I use is very quick and simple you must check the bands and change between drifts for signs of wear or damage. BOOMS IN USE HERE the rig will work with all sizes of my booms and the tubebooms too,.

This example shows a mono rotten bottom so you can see two options.
