Choosing The Right Carp Fishing Rig

Anyone who enjoys carp fishing (karp hengel) is probably aware of carp fishing (karp hengel) rigs. You may have already used one, or you might just know about them. The following article will explain more about the most popular rigs.

The Reverse Combi Anchor Rig
This rig is a very popular bottom bait rig that makes it a lot easier to land a carp. The rig is made from a supple braid section and a still bristle filament. This is a very effective means of fishing for bottom feeding fish such as carp. The two elements are fastened together with an Albright knot. When you are using this rig, try using two glugged dumbbells. This makes it easier for the hook to be set. The dumbbells work to provide a good balance for the rig, and the barrel shape makes it easier to lure in the carp.

The KD Rig
If you are having trouble with cautious carp when carp fishing (karp hengel), this is a good rig to try. A pop up makes a good neutral bait, and you can put shot beneath the bait. Another option is to put a cork stick into a bottom bait. Be sure to set the hook up properly when using the KD rig. Place the hair at the right angle to make the point of the hook as heavy as possible so that the carp cannot escape.

The Snowman
This carp fishing (karp hengel) rig is simple to tie and resembles bottom bait rigs. A small pop up sits on top of the bait due to the extension of the hair. To make the point as heavy as possible, put a short section of shrink tube or a micro ring on the shank of the hook. This holds down the hair before the hook bends.

The Chod Rig
One of the most widely used of carp fishing rigs is the chod rig. This is a good rig to use when you are fishing using a scatter of bollies. As the fish swim around to grab the bait, the rig will surprise them and catch them unawares. If you are fishing in the weeds or in a part of the lake where there is a dirty bottom, this is one of the best rigs to use. In such cases, you should use a drop off lead. Since the carp tend to swim by the bed of weeds, this will give you the best opportunity to catch the carp.
