Welcome to the Photo Recce Rig Guide!

All the information you need to build your own high quality beach fishing and rock fishing rigs.

Use the navigation links above-right to move around this section of the site.

 

Why build your own rigs?

Firstly, using rigs you've built yourself offers complete peace of mind. You know that all of your knots are strong and won't slip and also that all of the components are of the highest quality and won't let you down.

Secondly, the satisfaction of catching a good fish on a rig you've made yourself is a wonderful feeling. You've got it right, you chose the hook size and pattern that allowed the bait to sit enticingly in the tide, the snood length was ideal and everything held together perfectly as you hauled that fish through the surf or up onto the boat.

Finally, it's also cheaper!

 There are some really good rig builders out there who will create bespoke rigs for you using good quality components, but there are many more selling rigs that are basically not up to the job, and even some that are dangerous.

I don't make rigs for other people, or sell other peoples rigs or terminal tackle. 
Any recommendations on this website are based purely on personal experience.
