             Making an Amazon Catfish Rig

For Amazon Catfish up to 200 pounds;
a large (14/0) circle hook haywire twisted to 12 to 18 inches of strong (120 - 218 lb. test) wire then twisted to a heavy (150 lb. test) swivel. A two ounce (or heavier - as current demands) egg sinker is allowed to slide freely on your running line (50 pound or greater) braided line. This wire reinforced "Amazon" rig helps keep piranha away from the actual running line and minimizes the loss of hook, line and sinker.

This wire reinforced "Amazon" rig helps keep piranha away from the actual running line and minimizes the loss of hook, line and sinker.
