Wel­come from the Ed­i­tor...

WEL­COME to the lat­est is­sue of IYCF. Rigs are some­thing that I’ve al­ways been re­ally in­ter­ested in. What­ever species I’m plan­ning on tar­get­ing, ty­ing up a few rigs prior to the session is some­thing that I re­ally en­joy. I’ve got rig boards full of carp set-ups which I’ll prob­a­bly never use but, when­ever I see a new rig in a mag­a­zine or on so­cial me­dia, I can’t help but tie up a few just to see how the me­chan­ics work. It never ceases to amaze me how in­no­va­tive an­glers con­tin­u­ally come up with new rigs and pre­sen­ta­tions. Just when you think there can’t be another way to at­tach a boilie to a hair-rig or a dif­fer­ent way to fish a Method feeder, some­one comes up with fresh ap­proach. In this month’s ‘rig spe­cial’ we’ve com­piled 30 bril­liant pre­sen­ta­tions that are par­tic­u­larly ef­fec­tive dur­ing the sum­mer months for a wide range of pop­u­lar species. From pel­let wag­glers and Method feed­ers for com­mer­cial carp to mag­got feed­ers for roach and stick float set-ups for chub, we’ve got you cov­ered. Stick­ing with this month’s rig theme, top spec­i­men an­gler, Kevin Dur­man, lifts the lid on the clever tench rig which he de­vised to get around a fake baits ban on his lo­cal wa­ter (page 41) and Brian Skoyles ex­plains how he sets up for catch­ing spec­i­men carp off the sur­face (page 106). Luke Val­lory also ex­plains how to tie the carp rig of the mo­ment - the Multi-Hinge rig (page 116). This rig has ac­counted for some huge fish in re­cent months, so it is well worth tak­ing the time to learn how to tie it and have it ready to go.
