Default Pompano leader peg board

Well I built the prototype this morning, I'm still doing a little adjustment here and there but I've about got it the way I like it. I need to add one more nail for a larger single drop conversion for a bull red leader. I've always tied all my leaders by hand,but some times my guesser would be off on length or distance between the drops. So.... I decided to try my hand at building a peg board for consistency of leader lengths and distances between the two drops. I like it ! Keep in mind that this is just the prototype, not fancy or pretty. ..rusty nails and all. But now I know my dimensions and distances needed between the pegs to give me the leader that I want every time. Goes much faster too !

I like the idea, king, but it needs explanation (push pins vs nails?).
Very nice innovation for pre-setting the lengths. Mine are inconsistent.
I'm building one (out of some pretty cedar).

The push pins are just there to hold the open knot while you make the other one for the second drop. After you complete the second knot , you lift the line off the two nails closest to you and replace the back of the knot to the back nail and cinch it down. The push pins don't really bare any weight, they just hold the open knot until it's time to close it. This is needed because the open knot will not go back over the back nail until you remove the line from the front two nails.

Is the snuff there to spit on your hook? Lol

Close ....but actually the line . It helps to cinch the knot without friction burns. They say that you can do it with regular spit, but I think that the pompano dig the wintergreen flavor.

Looks good, how do you gauge a good distance? I like the hooks to to be about an inch apart with the main line tight. But I can still hook them together for travel.

Russ, I know you like those eagle claw #3 circle hooks. I started using them and they are the best bar none! However, I prefer the black steel to the silver ones. They seem stronger.

To accomplish that ,it's going to take a little trial an error. I would start with a junk board and just drive my nails in deep enough to hold. Tie a rig and see where you need to adjust. I went to Lowe's this morning and bought a new board and marked and stained and varnished it. I made a few adjustments that should get it right where I want mine. I'm waiting on it to dry now. Tomorrow I'll take a few more pictures and list the measurements that I settled on. That should give everybody a starting point. I also found that by adding one more nail that you could use the same board to make a single drop bull red rig.
