BAR­BEL fish­ing has de­vel­oped rapidly with many carp fish­ing ideas be­ing adapted in re­cent years. Whether it is us­ing boilies, or hair rigs, there is a big cross-over in tac­tics for the two species. One great rig for sum­mer bar­bel is the combi rig. This com­bines soft and stiff hook­length ma­te­ri­als to give the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of both. The low-vis­i­bil­ity, semi-stiff fluoro­car­bon sec­tion is ideal for avoid­ing tan­gles with long hook­lengths and when weighted is pinned down close to the riverbed. The short soft sec­tion en­ables the hook to turn eas­ily cre­at­ing a great bolt-ef­fect. A flat trac­tor lead is used to give max­i­mum hold when fish­ing in fast-flow­ing rivers. At­tached us­ing a lead-clip, the lead will be ejected should it be­come snagged dur­ing the fight. Im­por­tantly, strong com­po­nents are used through­out to en­able hard-fighting bar­bel to be played hard and landed quickly. Use this rig with larger baits, such as lun­cheon meat, boilies or larger pel­lets, ideal sum­mer food for big bar­bel.
