Just did my second incarnation of a CRig leader holder. First was wood with little nails and a rubber band on other end for hooks. Doesnt work all that well if you dont tie your leaders exactly same length, and I am now lengthening for hot water/summer fishing.

This is my next attempt. Cost was four dollars at home depot. I bought the four pack of 3/4 inch pipe insulation, tied those three together, then I used broken off toothpicks to stick the swivel over, which I dont love but dont want sharp nails etc. Anybody come up with a better design?

To easy to retie. Gets in way , unravels. gets caught on stuff

But good try.

I did the same thing many moons ago.

I agree. Gotta appreciate the effort, but a c rig can be made in about 45 seconds. It's a great use of 45 seconds too....that's when I sit down, retie, and get a drink.

I use a worm bag binder with the bags, stick one in each baggie. Works great, what you have done looks like a train wreck in waiting .

Agree with you Bruce. Good idea, but I wouldn't use it much. Since I use braid as my main line for the C-rig, if I break off 95% of the time it's just the hook. Can retie that really quickly. If I break it all off (which I hate!!), then it's probably time to cut off some of that braid anyway.

A 2 foot section of swimming pool noodle works well too. Put the swivel in place wrap the line around it and stick the hook point through the swivel to hold it

This is exactly what I do.....similar to yours, Steve.

I hate retying these things on the water, have worse eyes, or drag it through gnarlier rock patches than some of you guys (or all of the above) I guess. Will see how it goes.
