I’ve been using this rig for around 18 months now and I absolutely love it for a few different reasons. Firstly, until very recently, this rig wasn’t heavily advertised meaning a different presentation for the carp to deal with against 80% of other traps out there on the lake bed. Secondly, it offers full 360 degree movement, which in my head means more chance of catching hold of the carps lip during its “sucking and blowing” feeding routine. This movement, combined with the soft Slip-D section (which I’ve used for many years on a standard slip-d without the swivel) makes it even more difficult again for the carp to eject the rig without that nice sharp hook catching hold.
It is also very versatile; you can use it with a bottom bait, wafter or my favoured presentation a nice slow sinking small pop-up over a tasty spod mix. It perfectly suits my preferred method of carp fishing… smash loads of decent mixed sized bait out on a spot with a washed out pop-up sitting nice and low over the top of it, perfect!
So how do you tie it?
