How to hook your sweet­corn

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

AM I bet­ter off hair-rig­ging corn for carp or hook­ing it di­rectly in the nor­mal way?

Karl We­ston, Rother­ham

ARE you fish­ing the feeder or the pole? On the tip, hair-rig­ging works far bet­ter as a carp will have time to suck the bait in, whereas a bait im­paled di­rectly on the hook is eas­ier for the fish to eject.

Hair-rig­ging can work on the pole too, but with this tac­tic it’s bet­ter to hook the corn in the nor­mal way as you are not re­ly­ing on the fish hook­ing it­self (as you are when fish­ing the feeder). On the bite, you need to strike hard and pull the hook through the bait.

On the feeder, it’s far bet­ter to hair-rig corn.
