Make a big loop, tie a "four turn water knot" in the main line. Trim the tag. Cut the loop so that you're left with a 20cm or so dropper and another much longer length of line below the knot. Tie another "four turn water knot" below the first one and repeat the process. Tie hooks onto the droppers and a lead on the end.

If you need more hooks, start with a bigger loop.

Simple.

A properly tied four (or five) turn water knot is suprisingly strong and will do for most bait fishing situations where a two hook rig is required. I used to fiddle about trying to keep track of which side of the loop was the main line so I could maintain a degree of continuity with a single line right down to the lead but I've had no failures so I don't bother any more.
I've used this technique to make strings of four or five feathers in a Sabiki rig arragement with no problems and I also use it to create single hook patternoster rigs for beach fishing over rough ground - no problems so far.
No metalwork means one less thing to get snagged in the rocks and one less thing to loose (and pay for) if you do loose your gear.

Obviously, if big fish are expected, you don't want to go around fishing two hook rigs (unless it's something like a pennel rig) because two big fish going in different directions are almost impossible to control.

Hi Ken,

Your advice is appreciated as always. However, out of curiosity, I was wondering if I could use a figure of 8 knot (overhand loop knot) instead of 4 turn water knot?

Not the strongest of knots for this application. Its fine for making a terminal loop but doesn't like having pressure put on the tag end.
You'd be better off with a standoff loop for some applications but it very quickly gets to the point where you might as well start using hardware such as a three way swivel.
