TERRY HEARN MY TOP THREE RIGS

Angling Times (UK) - - 50 GREATEST CATCHES -

For all of his huge carp cap­tures, in­clud­ing his seven 50lb-plus gi­ants, Terry has used one of the three rigs de­tailed be­low. The trio of set-ups fea­ture strong com­po­nents and sharp hooks - the per­fect com­bi­na­tion!

STIFF -HINGE RIG For pre­sent­ing pop-ups over clean lakebeds or those with just a small cov­er­ing of weed, Terry will reach for his favourite stiff hinge rig. Once the bait is taken, it is very hard for the carp to eject. For pre­sent­ing baits hard on the deck, Terry opts for a coated braid rig. He uses two small pieces of shrink tube - one over the eye and one on the bend of the shank - to help flip the hook over on the take. BOT­TOM BAIT RIG CHOD RIG For fish­ing pop-up boilies over weedy or un­even lakebeds, Terry will use a chod rig. The slightly curved and stiff hook­link is free to ride up the lead­core leader and sit well clear of any de­tri­tus or weed.
