THE WITHY POOL RIG
This slightly bizarre looking pop-up rig is named after the venue where it was devised – Withy Pool. Subtle it isn’t, but if you’re faced with pressured fish adept at dealing with standard rigs, this could be the answer. The idea is that the long curved piece of tubing will fit around a carp’s bottom lip. To get a perfect curve use a cork to wrap the tubing around when holding in boiling water or over steam.
