When to use this rig

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tie The Ultimate Big Carp Rig -

I use this rig when boilie fish­ing, gen­er­ally over a scat­ter­ing of free­bies. It has served me well and I have caught some lovely fish do­ing this in re­cent months. I have fished bright ones in the past but, when you know the fish are feed­ing heav­ily on the baited area, I think it makes sense to fish a match­ing bait on the rig. I use the rig for sin­gle hook­bait fish­ing too and it gen­er­ally sits nicely over most lakebeds ex­cept for very thick weed. I can feel by the drop I get on the rod what type of lakebed I am fish­ing over. If it goes down with a firm drop, I know the rig will be pre­sented per­fectly. It seems to pick out the big­ger carp too. I think this is maybe be­cause it is too bla­tant for the smaller fish. I like get­ting bites, but I am try­ing to pick out the big­ger fish, and this rig cer­tainly seems to do that. Once the rig is steamed, it casts re­ally well and very rarely tan­gles. The ad­di­tion of an anti-tan­gle sleeve helps to fur­ther re­duce the chance of tan­gles by forc­ing the hook­link away from the lead. I have used this rig many times this spring and caught some lovely carp to over 34lb. I would hap­pily use this rig any­where, and when I am boilie fish­ing over a spread of bait, this is my num­ber one rig.

The hinged multi-rig is per­fect for fish­ing over a wide scat­ter­ing of boilies

Luke likes to match his hook­baits to the boilies he is feed­ing when us­ing this rig
