I would like to know what sort off weight to use on pat rig in rivers I have been useing 2 0z leads and find them too light as the sunken float tends to take the weight out off them. I was thinking off useing 4 oz to hold position or is this too heavy any advice appreciated.

I would use 3 - 4oz leads Mate. Should be more than ample if the rivers not pushing through too hard. Just my humble opinion.

Some of the rivers we fish will push a 3oz lead without any trouble, we will be going for 5oz next!!

I use two 2oz leads as the combined surface area holds better in the flow.

Hi mate,have you tried flattening the lead?physically hitting the lead on a flat hard surface with a lump hammer,i use these on the river in 3oz flattened,even when fishing a ledgered live or dead bait out in the flow,and they hold perfectly.another thing to remember is, i take you are using lives with the paternoster is the size of the bait itself,a 5" or 6" bait will pull a rig around,also fit a quick change link to your bottom,then you can change leads till you get it correct.im no expert but this seems to work for me.

Yea use a watch lead, a grippa or maybe even a capta lead or a flattened 4oz lead and you'll hold the bottom better.
