Hair Rig Questions

Recommended Posts

I've been experimenting with this rigging technique lately. I am still not convinced that I understand how to effectively create a stop on the end of the hair. I've checked out many knot tying sites as well as youtube videos that attempt to show the knot but they really don't succeed in explaining or demonstrating how to construct the stop. Most sites claim you need to tie a small loop in the end of the hair. Is this a permanent loop that you can then thread a chunk of the hair through to make a cinch around a stopper? Or, is that loop some sort of slip knot that can be loosened to remove the stopper when fresh bait needs to be threaded onto the hair? Or is it used in some other way entirely? I've had the most success by tying the rig with a loop of line as the hair and then girth hitching a stopper to it. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Hello. It is kind of hard to explain so here is a link with descriptions and pictures which should help you.

[Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

This is the same hair rig I use for Carp fishing, works great. If you have any more questions just ask.

Oops. Thanks for the attempt. Hopefully you'll figure out a way to work within the forum rules.

I did a little more investigating of hair rig photos. It looks like I was making my life more complicated than it should have been. It appears that once the bait is threaded onto the hair and a stopper device is placed into the loop at the end of the hair, the bait is then pushed back down the hair, over the knot, and against the stop. This is making sense now.

For anyone that uses a hair rig, do you experience much premature destruction of the bait because it has slide over the larger knot of the hair loop?

It depends on the bait you are using. Corn can get a bit damaged from the knot but not too bad. I mainly use Corn with hair rigs, but also use boilies which work well.

I'm not sure if you've read up on this already but you will also need to buy a bait needle. This will be needed to thread you're bait on to the hair rig.

Thanks for the tip. I've been using the wire from a twist tie as my threader but I think I'll cash my stimulus check and spend the 2 bucks to get a bait needle.

    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
