Breakaway Continental Impact Leads Continental Impact Leads. Continental style fishing has become very popular in the UK over the past few years especially during the summer months when the water is clear and calm,Not only has this been a productive development in the match scene it has also added enjoyment to our fishing utilising long light rods and light line.We had been asked many times to make a suitable lead to go with the lighter gear after much thought we decided to use our Patented impact system we realise not all anglers will want to clip down rigs but its there if needed, we also believe the cone will protect the lead and enhance the smooth retrieve. Available in: 115g and 135g
Breakaway Impact Leads The ultimate range of leads for todays match anglers. The aerodynamic design of the Impact lead helps put your bait out to the maximum distance and the wire formation keeps you there where the fish are. This range of leads all use the Impact cone to release the baited hook from the integral bait clip on impact with the water. The advantage of this method is that you know when the bait becomes unclipped and as the bait travels through the water its forced onto the hook bend and not up the trace length. All good rigs would still incorporate a bait stop.
Breakaway Leads The start of it all. The original Breakaway lead as used around the world for over 35 years by millions of anglers. Holds across the tide with the wires locked into the recesses by the nylon rollers when fishing but folds back on the strike making the retrieval easier on tackle and fish. The original concept of the Breakaway lead was the brainchild of Nigel Forrest and Ian Gillespie. Over the years the shape and its overall performance has changed to keep up with the demands of the most serious anglers

Breakaway Casting Cannon For accuracy and distance the most important element of your cast is holding down the line until the power stroke is complete. Its not easy and can be very painful without some mechanical device. The most popular is the Breakaway Cannon an original concept of Mr Alfred Priestleys. The Cannon is mounted under the rod in line with the rings and as near to directly over the spool. Unfortunately there is a wide variety of reels and reel fittings and many vary as to how they are fitted. Attach the Cannon onto the rod with insulating tape until you are happy with its position.

Breakaway Escape Links The Breakaway Escape Link is a 'rotten bottom' device which unlike traditional rotten bottoms does not involve the use of lengths of weaker line. The Escape link instead relies on the sprung tension of the locking pin to release the lead when pulling free from a snag. The amount of force needed to 'trip' the Escape Link can be set by slightly altering the angle of the locking pin. A sliding plastic ring is pushed down towards the sinker before casting and this locks the locking pin so safety is insured with even the most powerful of casting styles. When the rig hits the sea water pressure pushes the plastic ring up the link so that the Escape Link works correctly and frees the lead in the event of it becoming snagged. Packs of 6 *The versatile rotten bottom lead release *No specialist rigs necessary *No monofilament weak link required *Adjustable overload setting *Safe powerful casting *Tie on or add to an existing clip *Safe casting releases at about 12lb pressure *Always use fine wire hooks and heavier main line when using any rotten bottom clip *6 per pkt

Connected by Breakaways own twinlink for quick and easy rig change although we recommend an oval or fastlink on the leader to facilitate quick changes.

On the rear of the packaging are recommended safe rigs using the clip Can also be used as a lightweight slider for sea or coarse fishing. Available in packets of 10.
