Making up drop-shot rigs while you’re out fishing can be a pain. It takes time to get everything set up and it’s hard to do sometimes in the wind are rain. Carrying made up Drop-shot rigs can be equally tricky though, up till now I’ve had a few ready made rigs stored in my trace wallet, but they are fiddly to get in there are fiddly to get out and you can’t really store them with the weight attached.

The little yellow Rigrap 8512 is just 8cm long and less than 2cm thick, so very easy to pop in your pocket or store in a waist bag or rucksack pocket

Well this week we got sent a product that we think will change the way we store ready made lure fishing rigs forever ! Fishing Matters are the distributors for a number of very well known brands in the UK such as Partridge hooks, American Fishing Wire products and Cox & Rawle. They have just started distributing the Rigrap range of anglers storage solutions and they were good enough to send us a sample of one of their little Rigrap 8512 yellow cases and it’s absolutely perfect for storing a made up drop shot rig.

Here is the little RigRap 8512 case with one of my dropshot rigs inside. If you wanted to you could even leave the lure on the hook when you put it away as there is plenty of room in the middle.

The cases just snap open and shut and have a very neat layout which makes it easy to load them with a drop-shot rig, or indeed any rig you like. There is plenty of room on the middle to include the weight and you could even leave the lure on the hook if you want to put the rig back in the box ! One of the other nice things about the boxes is that they are transparent, which means it’s easy to spot which one you want if you carry a few with you.

Here's the box closed, as you can see it's still easy to identify the contents.

Another nice feature is the number of drainage/air holes the cases have. This means saltwater anglers can rinse their rigs off after fishing without even having to open the case…just run them under the tap and leave them to air dry.

The above is a nice graphic which shows exactly how the Rigrap cases work.

The 8512 size cases come in packs of four and we believe they will sell at around £6.99 for four, which we think is pretty good value. No doubt there will be plenty of stockists popping up over the next couple of months and stock has only just arrived in the country, but we believe they will be on sale at Glasgow Angling very soon

There’s lots of other products in the range too, so it’s well worth taking a look at the Rigrap website at www.rigrap.com

 

there are lots of sizes of Rigrap available and individual Rigrap cases can be 'snapped' in to purpose made holders and cases

    Great idea! Do you know if that storage system will still work with Daiichi Stand-Out hooks, John?

    Yes there should be no problem fitting the Daiichi hooks in the cases
