New Rigs

Recommended Posts

For my pop up presentations I tend to use these.....

http://gardnertackle.co.uk/product/pop-up-hook-aligners/

There's an accompanying video on that page if you click on the link. Very easy to use.

I thread the rubber part that forms the D through a bait screw with a rig ring attached. Can get that well hidden within the pop up and doesn't weigh too much

I also use these instead of putty or split shot to hold them down.....

Nice and neat.

Aligners look easier to use than tying the 'D'..might invest in a few..

They are a doddle. Even I can use them!!

If you are going with a size 6 or 4 hook you'll need the "large" size. Anything smaller hookwise, go with the "small".

I tens to use size 8/6...but at moment favouring size 6 Korda Kaptor curve...

"Large" it is then Mush.

As I say, they are really simple. I thread a bait screw onto the D rather than a ring. Just prefer to mount my pop ups like that.

Personally chaps this rig talk is completely useless. I'm fairly retentive when it comes to rigs, gotta look right, sit right etc. Then a big blow, my mate who just chucks any old rig on goes and catches a 30lb common last week on a blow back rig used with a pop up!!!! Single shot, very agricultural too, pre made rig as well. So work that out lads

I like my rigs to look tidy, personal obsession, but in most cases, 'any' rig in the right place is better than no rig in the water at all.

 

On some waters though, you may have to be more advanced.

There were a couple of interesting threads about complicating rigs:

If you got a sharp hook on there always a chance. I use blow back rig for most my pop up rigs with silicone tubeing rather than a ring also use a shot to counter balance it. Short hair jobs a good un. Just because a pop up is used doesn't nesseraly need attaching to hinge rig or anything fancy you mates rig sounds simple no nonsense rig to me.

I used to catch carp rigs I was making myself when I was like 12. Looking back they were awful attempts but they worked. I'd never take them on any hard water though as I'd not be confident I'd hook up a warier fish on them! 

Sometimes, just sometimes though a odd rig like that, well they ain't seen it, they don't know how to deal with it.

My point exactly, as stated, as long as you have a sharp hook on all these Ronnie rigs, multi, stiff hinge stuff goes out the window. Its a fashion really. If u look at ronnie vs multi, same hook bait presentation just in a different way.

Funny when ever you post pics of your rigs Nick I always think how untidy they look & I wouldn't be casting them out .

Point being we all have different ideas on what a tidy rig looks like .

Chances are most of them are used:wink:

Or I tie rigs to grab a quick picture then scrap them.

top and bottom of it is, the carp dont give a monkeys how tidy or neat your rig looks.

that is all down to how anal you yourself are and the more anal the tidier the rig, lets have some rig pics up so you can all be judged on how retentive you really are :wink:

Sure you're not really Mr gray from korda?? 

hahaa, no. I thought this one up last year whilst sitting on my bivvy one night. As always, these rigs are out there for yonks before made public. Not claiming I invented it but in my world I hadn't seen it before. Basically a less clutter stiff hinge rig in my opinion.
