Rotten Bottom

This is a rig designed with two purposes in mind: to land a fish over snaggy, rough ground and to minimise tackle losses. An old spark plug or bolt can be a cost effective substitute for the lead. There are many types of rotten bottom system that can be used. Here is one of the more common set ups.

WARNING: Don't even think of power casting with this rig.
