What’s the best rig for catch­ing barbel on nat­u­ral baits, and more of your ques­tions an­swered by our ex­perts

FEEDER AND CON­TENTS Go for a block­end feeder to use with hemp, mag­gots and cast­ers, and fish just enough weight so that it holds bot­tom but can be dis­lodged eas­ily when a fish takes the bait. LOOP To make the loop, trap a snaplink swivel in the loop and tie it off – the loop can be any­thing be­tween 4ins and 10ins long. Hav­ing a float stop above the loop en­ables you to slide it down to shorten the loop in sec­onds and, as a rule, a shorter loop will re­sult in more pos­i­tive bites. HOOK­LINK In keep­ing with the strong main­line, go for a hefty hook­link ma­te­rial of be­tween 6lb and 8lb. A mod­ern low-di­am­e­ter line will re­sult in more bites in clear wa­ter.
