Hi i read a while ago how to do a double hair rig with a pva bag and was wondering if anyone has used this rig succesfully whilst carp fishing, as i have made just the 1 rig to try out, i will let you know how it goes tomorrow if no-one has tried it on here yet.. :P

Hi and welcome to Anglers' Net.

Do please report on how you did with that rig.

well i went to earlswood lakes on sunday but as there was a competition on i decided to fish the margins and caught loads of perch around 25 no bigger than 1lb tho on red maggots but the last 2hrs i thought sod it and tried it with a pva bag containing some small 6mm high trout oil pellets some and a few 8mm green stim swim 8mm pellets with a couple tiger nut flavour pellets and red maggots and the hairs i put 2 of the stim swim pellets and 2 tiger nut pellets................... within 20 mins i caught an 18lb mirror , which is my new pb, and another 20mins an 11lb mirror with a really messed up mouth, so it was success and i recommend trying it out on any big lake, ps i only cast out 2 pva bags b4 i left and cought straight away on both. i will try again to make sure it wasn't a fluke happy fishing every1...:P

A really nice result.

As to being a rookie - not to worry. One nice thing about this place is the wide range of experience of the folks on here and their willingness to pass along what they know.

I don't get it, is it 2 hairs coming off the shank of the hook with bait attached? Pics would be cool.

Congratulations on the new PB, a great result. Plus welcome to Anglers Net.

I tied up a double hair rig earlier this year with the idea of using it for Catfish, but never got around to another cat session. It sounds like it is a good rig for Carp.

hey mate, yeah all you do is make yourself a standard hair rig but make the loop on the hair quite large, enough so that when you cut the loop in 2 that you can make 2 normal hair loops from the 2 ends, then tie your hook with a knotless not then attach the hook length to your line, i hope that helps i dont have any pics as of yet but will try and get some soon, hope it works for you also mate.. let me know on this thread how its goes :P happy fishing
