(Top left) Primarily for this rig Rick relies on the awesome hooking ability of his
Gardner Muggas.
(Middle left) These are his essentials for constructing this cunning carp trap.
(Bottom left) The new Sufix Camfusion is Rick’s preferred choice of hooklink.
(Top right) Cut a 14in length of the hooklink material, strip back approx. 5ins,
then form the hair loop. Next, attach a rig ring roughly 1.5ins back from the hair

setting the hair length fully.
(Bottom right) Put a barrel hookbait on the hair, and position the ring in the final
