Default Cracker Barrel Inspired Double Dropper Rig Board for Surf Fishing

Gearing up for my annual surf fishing trip down to the Emerald Coast, I was inspired to build myself a better jig for tying double-dropper rigs...after some talking with the wife, I got inspired by the little tee games at the Cracker Barrel. Working well so far..let me know what you think...attached the full writeup with instructions here

Decent write up but a diagram of what you looped where on step 6 would be immensely helpful. What is the pattern you put the line through all the pegs?

Sorry for the confusion folks....Might need to create a video I guess..it’s actually pretty simple but would be much easier to watch I would imagine

This is awesome if I'm following correctly. I can now tie 2 chickens to the neighbors goat while eating pancakes barefooted.

When you get good at that you can compete with me for drinking, driving, and shooting roadsigns left handed over the top of a pickup cab.
