I am going to persist

 I am going to persist in using plastics or jigs for dimersal fishing even though at this stage I have hooked the bottom and lost several jigs, much to my Mates extreme merriment!

Question is:-

How do I set up my line with either soft plastic or hard jig?

Some pics or diagrams of rig setups would help.

 Hey mate 

sorry couldnt add a pic to this post so had to make a new one with pics


I set up as in the pic so if I want to change out a jig for colour or type or weight I just continue using the assists etc and take jig off split ring and put new one on.

I just tie leader with allbright to top of swivel


FWIW don't worry about loosing a few jigs ...last time in the monties I was going through 10 or so jigs a day.

persist away mate

 Losing jigs all a part of the game.

on a Barra trip I will lose a couple of hundred bucks if not more worth of vibes and lures, it's a cost or doing business really.

losing your favorite jig/lure always hurts.

 absolutely no probs at all.  I've many times been known to just tie leader straight to jig and ommit everything when in a big hurry to get back down on a hot bite.  have still caught plenty like that.  It all works

 Have never used a swivel always tie to the solid ring , have taken others out that have used them and have seen the assist hook fouled in the swivel more than once


The next time i see that jig will be in the mouth of something big !!
