Using Sussex Spreaders

Spreaders are in use all around the UK but in Sussex we think we’ve perfected the art both of making and using them. A spreader is a double paternoster with a two hook snoods which run in parallel along the sea bed – either during a drift or at anchor. They need to be flexible and strong and yet provide enough sensitivity both to allow good but detection and not put the fish off by creating too much resistance.
The spreaders designed for use here in Sussex vary in width from 35 to 60cm and snoods should be no longer than half the width of the entire spreader. This prevents tangling and also allow for the spreader to work at optimum effectiveness.
Spreaders work the sea bed in a specific way when used on the drift. We’ve found the optimum drift speed is between 0.8 and 1.2 knots and this coupled with the correct length of snoods will provide enough lift to allow the attractor spoons to work.
