Also, I am confused as to the mainline. Do you use one piece of line for the whole of it or cut a piece of and once tied, tie it to a swivel??

Use a shorter peice of hooklength line, you need to be able to thread the end of line closest to the reel through the eye of the hook. Its a bit difficult if its attached to a reel.

perchlover its pretty simple fella...

theres a few ways here....

1. use different line and tie the hair rig as normal, once done, cut and leave about 1" tag. Get a lighter and burn the tag back to the eye leaving a blob (stronger than any knott) then get your main line and tie the hook on as you would normally. Classed as fishing completely straight through.

2. use a completly different hook link. 12lb main line and a 10lb hook link (for example). Tie the hair as normal then leave yourself about 14" then tie the swivel to the other end of it and should leave you about 10/12" hook link (perfect / average length) tie another swivel to your main line and use a quick link (ESP) and attach to 2 together

anything else, let me know

I tie the hair first using of one those green loop tyer things. Cut the line to the length I want. Tie the hook onto the hook length. Tie a loop in the other end of the hook length and then use the loop to loop method to put the hook length onto the main line.

Cheers guys. I also watched a video. I will practice it tonight or tomorrow night. I want to hair rig some sweetcorn and pellets and this looks a great method.

a tip.

if you have any fake corn (i 100% advise you to get some) when you tie your hair loop on the line (slide the hook on 1st [:T] ) attach the amount of corn you want to use with a hair stop, as normal then position the hook where you want it (length of hair is your choice) and then tie the knottless knott [:)]

Korum Quickstops are your answer. Great for corn.

I tie mine on to a length of hooklength line using a sliding knot then tie the hair using the knotless knot. Hook onto a pin in a piece of board and tie the loop at the right length marked on the board. I usually start with about 5 foot of hooklength line and get 4 ten inch hooklengths out of it.

Try using a larger hook at first (just to learn) before you start tying hair rigs using size 16's or similar. It's soooo fiddly tying up hair rigs on small hooks.
