RIGS AND SHOT­TING

Angling Times (UK) - - MATCH NEWS -

My rigs are light but bal­anced, as there is al­ways the chance of a carp or three, which you’d want to get out in a match. For fish­ing in very lit­tle depth of wa­ter this is one of my new F1 Shal­low floats in 4x10 or even 4x8 sizes.

Shot­ting is a string of No11 Stotz, and rigs are made up of 0.11mm Pow­er­line to a 4ins hook­link of 0.10mm Pre­ci­sion Power, No6 orig­i­nal Slip elas­tic set slack and a size 16 PR412 hook. if I was bag­ging, this would be upped to a size 14 PR434. This has a wider gape for more pos­i­tive, quicker fish­ing.

I’d also have an on-the-deck rig ready. This uses the same lines, hook and elas­tic with only the float chang­ing to a 4x14 or 4x16 F1 Mag­got, de­pend­ing on the depth and con­di­tions.

My favourite new F1 Shal­low float.

Float change for my on-the-deck rig.
