Rigs for Carp Fishing
Carp Fishing Rigs (Papgooi Stroppe) are crucially important because a rig that isn’t tied correctly will not only hinder you from catching a beautiful carp, they can also become life threatening to the carp that you are trying to catch. If a rig breaks off from your main line and a carp can not free itself from that rig it will die. That is why we will try and teach you the different types of rigs and how to make sure that they are always carp friendly.
With a wide variety of fishing waters, each having their own unique characteristics and structures having a wide variety of rigs available such as the Helicopter Rig, KD Rig, Inline Rig, Chod Rigs etc. makes it a lot easier to decide which rigs to use and which ones not to.
We will show you the different Carp Rigs (Papgooi Stroppe) that are available, how to correctly tie them and where and why you should use them, the different types of material you will be using and why they are used and we will also give you some hints and tips on improving the different rigs and where applicable alternative materials that can be used.
You will also learn the mechanics behind the rigs so that you know why they work in a situation where a nother rig doesn't so that instead of just following the latest top rigs that you read about in a magazine, you can begin to use the knowladge that you have gained to start making your own rigs or to modify the ones you already know!
Creating the perfect rig is not brain surgery but it will take a little time, effort and maybe a lot of patience but once you start getting the hold of it you will be able to different types of rigs and have a better understanding of which rigs to use and which ones to give a miss that day.
Just always remember one thing, no matter how good you start getting at making carp rigs you are still working with very sharp objects that can and will hurt you when ever they can. You will also at some points be working with steam and/or fire. Rather take a little more time and be safe than having to "fish" a hook out of your own finger or having to sort out some burn wounds and please, keep all objects away from children.
