All Things Riggy
1. Knotless knotted Big T.
2. Pass on a ring and back through the eye.
3. Blob the end with a lighter.
4. Tie a ring swivel on with a palomar knot.
5. A large blob of putty at the hook end.
6. Finished rig of 9-10ins.
Brazils both make excellent hookbaits), and then take a cork insert and
gently twist it into the drilled-out nut,
being careful not to split it. I fish this
balanced rig with a rig ring sliding on
a D-rig, so using a length of doubledover bait floss and a hair stop, I now
tie the bait onto the ring via three or
four granny knots before blobbing the
ends with a lighter to eliminate the
possibility of it coming undone.
With experience you can pretty
much judge exactly how much cork
you need to pop the bait up, but not
lift it off the bottom. If it’s too buoyant
however, you can snip pieces of cork
off with care until it sits just right.
Once again if you're using a decent
sized nut you can conceal the hook
from view, and I've had good success
using this type of setup with pop-up
fake corn when a smallish hook (7 or
8) can be used. This has accounted for
many fish for myself, including the
Car Park’s Pearly Tail, and many good
30’s from the likes of Frimley and
Linch Hill – all very pressured lakes.
While I'm on the subject of this sort of
hook being shielded by the bait
arrangement, I'm going to outline the
simple but very effective rig I usually
employ with this setup, and as I'm
about to move onto the hooklink
materials to give good concealment
anyway, it follows on very nicely.
I first started to use this rig back in
2002 on the Yateley Car Park Lake. I
was using a mixture of particle baits,
mainly hemp, mixed particle seeds,
