Bolt rigs use short hooklengths, super sharp hooks and heavy leads so that the fish hooks it'self against the weight of the lead when it feels the prick of the hook and "bolts" to try to get away.
Some basic rigs are shown here

Always use what is called a semi fixed or safe rig so that a hooked fish can dislodge the lead in the event of your mainline breaking.

Hey Ken
one small question
these rigs can be used in salt water fishing?

I don't see why not but I don't think you need that degree of sublety for saltwater fishing.
A simple patternoster is in effect a self hooking bolt rig if the hooks are sharp enough and it has the advantage of not putting the mainline from the reel to the hook in contact with the bottom.
If you don't want to fish a tight line, circle hooks will also pretty much self hook fish in saltwater.

It depends on what components you have available.
Anything and everything that you see shown in rig diagrams is available via e-bay.

If we assume though that you don't want to go down that route, abooout the only specialised bit of gear you would need would be some rubber float stops - they're easy to find in Asia and much, much cheaper than they are in the UK..
After that, it depends on what kind of 3 - 4oz (70 - 100g) leads you have available, as this will deturmine whether you build an in-line rig or a rig with the lead on a link.

Either way, you will basically put a float stop on your main line followed by a bead, followed by your lead (or the swivel end of your leadlink), followed by another bead and then tie on a swivel.
Lubricate the float stop and slide the whole lot down to the swivel so it's all bunched up.

Next tie your hook of choice to a braid hooklength with a hair (you will be using a hair rig as it guarentees full hook exposure) and tie your hooklength to the swivel but keep it short - between 4 and 12" (10 - 30cm) and you're good to go.

If you have problems with tangles, you might need to use some rig tube above the lead but cross that bridge if/when it becomes a problem.
