Had time to kill, made myself a patrnoster rig.Hook size 1/0 and 4
For good measure, made another with 2 'double hooks' at different levels.
Now that i know how to make one, any ideas on its usage for fresh water? I read/ understand that the paternoster is primarily for sea fishing...

Hi Asif,
I think they are used in freshwater too.

I know, used a paternoster rig yesterday...more like the 'smoke test'? it didnt get tangled up in itself or break my rod.So I did something right. Not even a nibble because the lake had been cleaned out by the weekend warriors!
Interesting history though- hoary legend has it being used by St.Peter himself-I guess fishermen are welcome in heaven? ;)
Best
Axx

Multi hook paternoster rigs have a place in sea angling because they allow you to fish baits at several depths and give you a t least a chance of keeping one of the baits on a hook if you have hoards of bibbling tiddlers.
In freshwater, theyare mainly used by meat "fishermen" to try to catch several fish on a single setline although there are several valid applications.
The rig shown by Owen allows you to fish a livebait at distancd and keep it from burrying iself in weed or other bottom debris.
A simple patternoster with a long lead link will allow the lead to sink into the silt of muddy lakes but leave the bait visible.

Personally, I mainly use the rig for beach fishing as a patternoster tied with a water knot is just about the simplest rig there is and minimises losses when fishing into rocks.

Only if you pray right!!!

I pray that I may live to fish.......
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.
