7 DITCH THE HAIR RIGS

Angling Times (UK) - - JAMES ROBBINS: RIVER CHUB -

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.
