Breakaway 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. Breakaway had been asked many times to make a suitable lead to go with the lighter gear after much thought they 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: 110g and 130g Save Money when buying in 5s or 10s
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 Adjustable Crimp Tool The new crimping tool for the new adjustable crimp. The body of this ingenious tool is made from heavy duty plastic so you can keep it in your tackle box without fear of corrosion. The metal blade that produces the lateral crimp is specially hardened to give maximum durability.Crimp Tool For too long crimps have been the weak link in trace design especially with crimping tools that produces serrated cuts accross the crimp. damaging the trace body in the process. This new tool crimps length ways in a neat controlled way allowing the adjustable crimp to be virtually locked or to a leeser degree so the the crimp can be moved to suit the trace design. The tool will come complete with 20 crimps and rubber inserts but may only be used with the new soft adjustable crimps
Breakaway Bait Loader Much easier to use than conventional bait needle. You can either Slide the bait on to the needle .Then put the hook in the loop and wrap with elastic or bait hook as normal then put onto needle and whip this method works well for smaller baits and for tying in fish strips once the worm bait is on the hook. Perfect for Fish strips all Soft baits like Mussel Prawn etc
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. Always check that your clutch is tight before casting in areas where big fish are regularly caught winding your leader around the Cannon three times will allow you to cast with a light clutch fitting.
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
