rigs have changed immensely during the last
few decades. Since the early days of floating
crusts and parboiled potatoes, more and
more anglers have begun to specialise in
catching carp, new specialist venues have
appeared on the scene and carp rigs have
become an important element in catching
carp today. With this increase in popularity
comes an increase in the amount of pressure
on our waters. The fish become increasingly
wary and to carry on catching specimen carp,
we must continually come up with more and
more ways to outwit them, and carp rigs
play an important role.
The key to this is in bait presentation
and to achieve this, we must be able to
create and tie our carp rigs correctly.
This section is dedicated to explaining
the many types of carp rigs available today
and to show you just how to get them right.
With the right carp rig and
the right bait, presented correctly in the
right place, you will stand a much greater
chance of putting that personal best on
the bank. We will continually add to these
pages as new advances in the rig scene are
discovered, and if you know of a good carp
rig that you have tried and caught carp
with, then let us know. Tell us how it is
tied and why you think it works and we will
add it to the site.
