I watched John Beath's Rivers Inlet "Secrets of the Pros" video and he tied his whole herring rigs so that there was no tag end sticking out on the trailing hook so that he could easily hook the trailing hook in the tail and then "hide" the hook shank inside the herring so that it was streamline and otherwise not visible. If there is a tag end it catches on the skin of the herring and tears it up when you go to place the hook in the tail. I have always cut my tag ends short to avoid this, but he had a different way to tie the leader. On the video, I couldn't tell how he was tying it. it wasn't close enough/clear enough for me to see it. Does anybody have a special way to tie their herring rigs that they would like to share? OR Has anybody every tied their herring rigs how Mr. Beath has shown in his video? It was just something new to try and I was curious what other people are doing. I usually don't run bait, but then again I haven't fished Westport like I plan to this summer.
