deals with the terminal or end rig.By that the part from the lead to the
hook is meant.
There are some different types of rigs.
The confidence rig tries to avoid everything that would make the
A freerunning ,small lead,a small hook totally
covered with the bait.This rig will work well in
waters fished for
Carp the first time;where the Carp are not fished heavily or for a long
will produce clear runs good to pull in,as long as the Carp
are not caught so often that they will learn to avoid the bait.Then
you will get "twitcher" when that happens itīs time to change the
get full runs again.
The hair rig is the logical development after
the confidence rig.Itīs to fool the Carp,because the
bait can move
more naturally.Also it is easier to set the hook because no bait is on
of the rig is similar to the confidence rig.Changes
become neccessary if the twitchers start
again. It was invented in the 70īs by Len
Since then it has not changed much.
First the hair was a very
thin mono tied to the hook,now the hair is tied by the hook length
to the hook without a real knot.
The next step in the rig development.Itīs
similar to the confidence rig but the the lead is heavier
fixed,also the hook length is shorter.So the hook is set before the Carp
moves a lot and
the hooking rate rises.Donīt use this rig as a
starting point in a water fished for Carp
the first time.As I tried to
show the rig is a development so when you start with the latest high
end rig what will you use when you get twitchers?
rig is an advanced bolt rig,Here the lead is much heavier and set to
the end of
the line and the hook length is a lot shorter.The rig is
good for long range,because provides
for fewer tangles.Itīs the
latest rig developed,all rigs you can see in magazines are changes of
the listed rigs especially in the hook and the way to tie it to the
Just some words about changing the rigs.You donīt have to change
the rig as first step when
you get twitchers.First change the
bait,if you use boilies change to particles.When the twitchers start
again change the sort of particle and as the last thing to change
,change the rig.
