wow, if you tied one each of those, you'd only need 400 various swivels, 200 various clips, some broom pieces, 9 wire hangers, 50 thousand beads, some sequins, a bag of old knitting stuff, and the car door off a 1972 plymouth.


seriously, please don't festoon your rigs with any of that nonsense.

LOL LOL F E S T O O N ?????

Origin:
Traced back to 1630, the word "festoon" is from the French "feston" and the Italian "festone."
These words mean "a festive ornament," from the word "festa," a celebration or feast.
Definition:
A festoon is a decorative chain or strip hanging between two points.
The word also refers to any element that represents a decorative chain, such as carved stone,
molded clay or plaster element, or painted ornamentation.

LOL - isn't that what individual and personalized sport fishing is all about ????
Colorful trickery to entice a fish into biting your hook ???
Nobody said that you actually have to use any of those ideas for your tackle.
IMO - I will not ever let anyone tell me how NOT to fish !!!!!!!
it is nice to share information, good or bad. THAT is how we all LEARN.
And I also found it an interesting read.

The fishermen in the UK are well-known for using a ton of "hardware" on their rigs.

Apparently, it works for them in their particular part of the world.

Personally, I'm a "minimalist", when it comes to "festoonments" ( LOL ! ) on my rigs . . . HOWEVER. I do use some of their ideas ( not the specialized hardware ) on what they refer to as "Distance Rigs" and the "rough ground" Pulley Rig and they WORK WELL !!!
