'IT’S THIS GENERATIONS VERSION OF CARP FEVER'
"The best rig is one with a bait attached that they really want to eat." Is how rig and bait guru, Jason Hayward once put it. And how true that is.
But (and of course it’s a lovely big rounded 'but'), with every bait manufacturer in the land stating their carp food is better than 'theirs', what harm can it do to stake the odds in your favour when it comes to end tackle – i.e. rigs and lead arrangements? It can’t – and hence why this creation you hold before you was born. It’s the ultimate collection of rigs, advice and how tops.
It starts by laying the foundations: the basics of how a carp feeds - knowledge which will help you develop and tweak your rigs. This leads onto analysing hook holds – the only sign that will tell you how well your rig is performing. We cover literally every knot known to man. We showcase 20+ of the latest rigs, each featuring clear, easy-to-follow illustrations or crisp-sharp photography. We look at 'the pro's' rigs: Gaz Fareham’s Rig For A 50; Nigel Sharp’s Stiff Bottom Bait Rig; Lewis Read’s Fatal Rig and many more. We look at lead choice (why) and set-up (when). And finally we have a manual of How To’s which will only aid in ensuring you get more bites after carrying them out.
What lays within this behemoth of an encyclopaedia has taken the featured anglers decades to learn and develop. You’ll have that wealth of knowledge in just 132 pages. Good luck, carp!
