Can someone tell me straight up what a Snafu rig is? Maybe post a couple of pictures? Pretty please?? GT??

 

I've always fished one hook but I thought I'd tie some snafu's and give them a try.

Take stiff mono leader strand, snell hook at each end, tie dropper loop off-center, attach to leader/line.

GT is on punishment for posting the directions & the secret photographs. The Snafu is a terrible rig which hangs up very often, is very difficult & time consuming to tie, and that heavy leader scares the fish away.

Where do you put the sinker with that rig? And are both hooks for 1 crab?

 

The sinker goes on a loop at the bottom end of your leader. About 2 inches above your sinker you tie a small dropper loop in your leader and attach that to the dropper loop on the rig in the picture.

 

Yes both hooks for one crab. You want to make sure the crab lays flat and upright when it's hooked.

Snafu Asians? Easy, just hook yourself Triet tongue.gifwink.gif

 

The rig sucks and only hangs up more frequently, plus it's for hacks only.
