Default Tempest sand eels

Ive got some tempest holographic sand eels. I'd like to try them for
pollock. They are rubber, with no hook. Obviously I must add a hook and
swivel to these. Can anyone tell me how to rig these up? Or to point me to a
website with some information on using them.
Thanks
Ian

Cut your trace length, tie on hook. Push free end through sandeel and out
of 'mouth', pull hook up into eel (the length of the hook's shank should
have been chosen so that the knot is now protected by the rubber body), tie
on swivel and store as usual.

Cheerio,

Thanks Derek.I take it that I should rig it so that the hook is about 2/3
down the body of the lure, as most rubber eels.
And as most rubber eel type lures have a long twisted shank to the hook, to
impart a realistic movement when trolling, this lure does not need that
bend?

Yes, or maybe not even that much, predators will attempt to take them by the
head.

Are they the ones I think they are - actually a small rubber eel rather than
a sandeel, moulded with a swimming curve in the body?

If so, the body straightens a little with the pull and then springs back to
the curve. iIf you get the pull right the change in resistance sets up a
harmonic motion and for the few moments in which a fish must decide whether
to attack it must approximate a swimming movement fairly well.

Cheerio,

OK Derek, Many thanks for your help. I'll be trying these out at the weekend
here near Kinsale.
It really is a pity that so many newsgroups now have a resident mischief
maker. I believe the best way to deal with it is to make absolutely no
comment, regardless to how inflamatory the posts are. See

Thanks again
Ian

Better off looking at the url that deals with moody the bully and pro
hunt troll then you gnome!
http://tinyurl.com/6m9qds

http://tinyurl.com/59p43q

A classic case of him reaping what he sows I guess. Mind you he does
try hard to keep his bullyboy trolling out of the gnome groups, but we
like to give as good as we get so you get to benefit as well.

I hadn't noticed that urfs was in the X-post, sloppy of me. Pete is a long
time troll, it appears to be his only hobby.

If so, the physique straightens a little with the cull and again springs aback to the curve. iIf you get the cull appropriate the change in attrition sets up a harmonic motion and for the few moments in which a angle have to adjudge whether to advance it have to almost a pond movement adequately well.
