Tip of the Month by Matt Eaton                             

In my tackle box I have a small piece of laminated card.  I find this makes things much easier when checking my hook points with the Jag eyepiece as the dark hook contrasts well against the white card. 

The card has lines marked on the reverse.  When tying up a chod rig I place the hook over the end of the card, pull tight and bend my Chod Wyre where it crosses the line.  I then tie the ring swivel at this point thus ensuring that every rig is exactly the same length.

Matt from the lads at Atomic, well done and thanks for the great TIP, Steve..
