SHORT RIGS AND BAL­ANCED BAITS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

CARP feed heads-down on par­ti­cles, which can lead to bite­offs if hook­lengths are too long.

To avoid this, use rigs no longer than 6ins. The weight of the hook can mean that the hook­bait re­quires more suction to pick up, and so is missed.

To pre­vent this, add a small piece of rig foam to coun­ter­act the weight of the hook.
