Razorbill Swivel Gear

The Razorbill Swivel Gear was developed especially for use with electric jigging machines.
This gear has proved to be very effective and has quickly become popular through word of mouth between fishermen; particularly those around Shetland, the West Coast of Ireland and also closer to home in West Cornwall. For most that try these traces they quickly become their go-to choice.
The main advantages of this gear is the extended working life compared to traditional traces tied with loops or snoods, so although each set may cost a bit more it can be expected to last much longer, so long term this gear type works out to be much more cost effective.
All the hooks are free hanging and fully articulated so they catch fish very well but they also file through rollers and stripping bars much easier with fewer catch ups.
The design of the Razorbill hooks mean they remain sharp after repeated contact with the rollers, line guides and stripping bars.
There are three line strength options and two hook size options available.
(Size 8 is larger. Similar to mustad size 16. Size 9 is smaller similar to mustad size 17)

Fairwater Metal Head

The Metal Head is a new way of making Mackerel traces that we have spent a couple of years developing with trials aboard our own boat and with help and feedback from full time fishermen all over the UK, Ireland and as far afield as the USA.

The concept allows us to make Mackerel traces with a single snood that are incredibly strong but will still out fish most sets of traditional gear tied with Norwegian loops when the fish are not feeding hard and fishing becomes scratchy.

The Metal Head provides a very neat and secure connection that is virtually failsafe and it also has the added bonus of adding attraction to the hook.

These traces are designed and assembled in house by us and assembled in our quayside workshop which is set up for the task. They are unique to Fairwater Fishing.

Each hook is dressed with brightly covered PVC tube, 4 strands of Super Red ribbon in the tail, and then the Metal Head. We use extra strong Razorbill type 894-3 hooks which last longer and we only use top quality clear monofilament line.
Our Metal Head traces are suitable for use with heavy hand winding set ups, powered gurdy and light to medium jigging machine set ups.
Available in sets of 10, 15, 20 hooks, 25 hooks and 30 hooks. Each set has a loop at the top for fast and secure connection and short sets can be easily joined together to make longer traces.
