F1S SHAL­LOW

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

So many an­glers use the same shal­low rigs for carp and F1s but they are very dif­fer­ent crea­tures and re­quire al­ter­na­tive set-ups. F1 bites are no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult to hit but plac­ing all of your shot in a bulk just above the hook­length helps cre­ate a bolt rig ef­fect. The fish hit the hook­bait at pace and the hook is set thanks to the weight of the bulk pulling back. A bulk also makes a noise when slapped on the wa­ter which at­tracts F1s.
