I am glad to see the " old paper clip" trick is being used by someone else ! It also makes a good " Frame" for plasticine if you need added weight or just want to use plasticine . I will be having a go with the floating devon next season .My method for the floating Devon was a drilled bullet weight mounted on a straightened out paper clip.
A length of 10lb Dacron backing (very very abrasion resistant!) to which a straight paper clip was fitted by bending a loop in the top of the paper clip, the bullet was slid on the straight clip which was then bent over to hold it in place.
It would stand up to real heavy casting all day long, the Dacron is very abrasion resistant, if the rig gets snagged the paper clip opens out letting the rig slide free, or the dacron breaks in the extreme cases.Its also easy to change weight while in the river.
The whole rig was fished paternoster style, usually from the bottom eye of a quality swivel on the main line, which then had 1ft of 30lb rubbing link to a BB swivel, then 3ft of trace to the minnow.
Much the same as all the other rigs spoken about, merely a personal variation there of!, any road I had loads of 10lb Dacron not being used and I knicked loads or paper clips from work!.
