HAIR-RIGGED FAKE MAGGOTS
BEST FOR: Tench
Maggots are hard to beat when fishing for tench at this time of year and this rig is excellent when targeting specimen-sized tincas. It is incredibly simple to tie and simply requires you to knotless knot your hook to a short supple hooklength. To avoid tangles on the cast, you need to ensure that the hooklink is shorter than the total length of th e feeder. The other advantage of the short hooklink is that when fished in conjunction with the heavy inline feeder it provides excellent self-hooking properties.
