This is what i use for tying my hooklenghts and it only cost about a fiver to make and does the same job as those expensive purpose made ones.

Base is a offcut piece of decking
plinths are a cut down piece of bannister spindle
holders Terry clips
rubber a wheel from a radio controled airoplane (front wheeel)
White fitting electrical junction box fitting

I hope this may inspire you to make your own and source the fixtures and fittings from around the shed/garage.[Good luck any quastions mail me or post reply....Or you may think its a load of rubbish...it works for me....Jazzy

Looks interesting.
Can you explain a bit more about how you tie a rig with it please?
Is that a Matchman hook tying thingy you're using?
I've tried one but with little success.

Hi Ya if you know how to use a matchman tyer you will be well away....I just cut my lenght of line make my loop and place it over the pin and then tie it as you woiuld if you were useing the hook tyer by hand ( i think there are instructions on the net or this forum available much better than i would be able to explain) All hooklenghts are the same size with a little practice and patients you will get your ideal lenght right that will fit into your rig box.
