7 DITCH THE HAIR RIGS
HAIR rigs might work well for carp and barbel but not so chub, unless you’re fishing short bolt rigs. With a hair, chub can spit a bait out on the edge of their lips without the hook ever entering its mouth.
It’s usually better to simply straight hook baits such as meat, bread and cheese, so you can strike straight away as soon as you know a chub has the bait properly in its mouth. Straight-hooked baits are best for chub.
