THE Ron­nie rig, as ex­posed by Lewis Read in this is­sue, has long been catch­ing carp un­der the radar, but now it’s out in the open and set­ting tongues wag­ging.

It cer­tainly caused a stir in our of­fice and, as you can see from the pic, we just had to tie some up our­selves. The beauty of it is you can store the busi­ness-end sec­tions eas­ily in a hook packet be­fore tying on a de­sired boom sec­tion at the lake.

I was so im­pressed by the po­ten­tial of this rig that I tried it out my­self on a quick ses­sion at Blue­bell Lakes and man­aged to catch one very quickly – al­beit prob­a­bly one of the small­est carp on the whole com­plex! I will def­i­nitely be ex­per­i­ment­ing fur­ther!

A lot of our time on the bank is ac­tu­ally spent watch­ing other an­glers fish, but in the last month I’ve man­aged to sneak in some post-work ses­sions on the river – perch fish­ing from a kayak!

I’ve owned a kayak for many years but ridicu­lously I’d never thought to fish from it.

Tak­ing a small lure rod out with me has been a reve­la­tion and I re­ally wish I’d done it sooner.

And that’s a les­son I think we can all take into our own fish­ing – don’t be afraid to try some­thing dif­fer­ent!
