Technical Rig Design
(Top left) Secure the hair to the hook
using a 4-5 turn knotless knot.
(Middle left) The rig should look like
(Bottom left) Cut a 10mm length of
shrink tube, position it over the knot,
and shrink it forming a gentle curve.
(Top right) Place an additional 10mm
piece of shrink tube on the hooklink,
and when you have formed the loop in
the end, leaving the rig approx. 7ins
long, shrink the tube over the knot.
(Middle right) Add a small piece of rig
putty to the hooklink, and the
completed rig should look like this.
(Bottom right) The rig gets attached
to the leadcore via a simple loop as
shown. This is the basis of the drop off

it invariably leaves residue on the barrel, and this further sets it apart from
the already dangerous-looking round
standard shape, making it even more
appealing to a guileful old cypry. After
the boilies have been deposited, half a
dozen spods of the Hot Hemp completes the baiting regime, and it is a
case of sitting back and waiting for
the alarm to sing. Judging by the success Rick has enjoyed this year he
never seems to have to wait long, and
constantly manages to get amongst
some of the biggest carp in his chosen venue. So there you have it – big

his successful winter rig, and I am
sure that with an angler of his calibre
