    IMO you don't want really buoyant pop-ups for the multi rig, having huge blobs of putty makes a definite tangle point.  I prefer a reliable medium buoyancy pop-up with a small amount of putty.
    Just my findings for what its worth. 👍

    Normally overnight delivery. Boilies are fine to be re-frozen.

    Agree with Yonny. Do what you are confident in and fish well and catch the fish. Someone has done well on particle, everyone else has fished particle ever since. no fish come out on boilies because no-one fishes on them!
    "you wont get them to eat sweetcorn or maize in here mate, they dont like yellow baits" I chucked a handful maize in the margin under a snag and watched 5 carp demolish it about 10 minutes after I heard that.

    Echo this. Sometimes I do just drop in a swim on my instincts and knowledge because I think it’ll give me the best chance at some point. Whether a change in wind overnight means it may come good in the morning as I pack up or something. A pre-planned attack.

    That's interesting as my percentages would be completely different.
    Rigs - 5% max - as long as it presents and resets it's good enough imo.
    Bait - more important - a good 10 or 20 %.
    The rest would all be location. Identifying (or creating) and fishing the spots the carp are prepared to feed on. Put me on fish and 99 times out of 100 I'm mega confident. If I'm not on fish then nothing will make me confident.

    greekskii got a reaction from Highy in Confidence in Carp Fishing   
    For me I am confident in my bait and my approach (multi rigs or chods). Really the only part of the puzzle left for me is location, and that's where it's all down to me. I sometimes make the wrong decisions but as long as I act on it by moving or keeping a note of it for next time I am happy. I think the biggest downfall in an angler is stubbornness, I've fallen foul of it a couple of times, determined to get a bite from an area or a swim when I know i'm p*ssing in the wind and should be elsewhere. 
    I am confident that I know what I'm doing though and I know how to find the fish. Sometimes you just cant though and you have to make you're best judgement on previous knowledge and the conditions, if that is the case and I blank then I dont worry too much about it.

    That's about the size of my loop Geezer. And I'll agree it help keep the boilie in place on the hair. But as I say, the ESP stuff frays up like a good 'un.

    let me know how it is, I'm tempted to get the semi-stiff instead of the usual Atomic Jel-E-Wyre.
     
    Also just picked up a few mushroom trays so I can dry out bait better in the garage.

    I probably have too but when I found I had foul hooked one that had probably just swam straight into the rig whilst feeding I thought how silly if I had used a bottom bait it would've hoovered it up no worries

    You're right, they find the most comfortable depth, which is the most stable temperature-wise. Normally the middle layers as cold water is denser and sinks.

    greekskii got a reaction from crusian in Big hooks Vs small hooks   
    Big hooks all the way. I use a minimum size 6 with 4s being my fave. I drop to 8s in winter normally if I switch to a more commercial water. For me I would rather potentially hook less fish but know when I do hook a fish the hook can cope with whatever may happen during the figh (snags, weed, etc)
    Reasons being:
    1 - the larger gape between shank and point means more flesh is gripped so much less chance of losing fish
    2 - easier to balance pop ups using less putty or shot so neater rigs
    3 - stronger hooks as wire is always thicker than smaller sizes
    I will also disagree with the whole small fish dont pick up big hooks. I have personally caught 2lb bream & tench on size 4s popped up 2 inches off the deck.

    In order to combat this issue is use a hook bead to keep the loop in place.
