Rigging wires help to eliminate the hassles of tangles while trolling. Here's a note from Buzz Ramsey on using Rigging Wires.

Rigging Wires – For Trolling 

When it comes to trolling, anglers do everything possible to eliminate line tangles, which is a big part of why innovative products like divers, bottom walkers, downriggers, and spreaders were invented and remain popular with those trolling for fish big and small. The latest innovation, for me and other Northwest anglers, is to use heavy-duty wires rigged in conjunction with flashers and/or as weight droppers when employing cannon ball style sinkers in the four to 20 ounce range.

These new Rigging Wires are not made from thin, wimpy wire but instead .051 diameter stainless-steel wires with 3-wrap eyelets and a size 5 stainless snap to facilitate quick attachment. The wires themselves are available in 10 and 15 inch lengths, which means they measure 11 and 16 inches when you include the #5 snap. 

When trolling for big fish like salmon, I often rig a Fish Flash behind a diver or Free-Sliding Spreader to help attract fish – it works! How I’m using these is to snap a rigging wire to the end of my Fish Flash and connect it to a swivel and a 24-to-36 inch leader back to my lure or bait. That way, if I or one of my friends get a tangle, I’ve only got a short leader to straighten out instead of a long one, as the .051 wire (being heavy duty) just won’t tangle around itself. In addition, rigged this way my swivel is about half way down my leader which forces it to work better than if on the end.

Rigging wires work great as dropper lines as they won’t collapse like mono and, similar to a bottom walker, keep my gear at the right distance above bottom when fish are holding there.

While the above is how I use the all-new Rigging Wires, the applications are many as they are designed to replace monofilament when rigged behind divers, ahead of and behind flashers, for attachment to jumbo size halibut jigs, and to extend downrigger cable rigging at the weight.
