thankyou :)

As famous fisherman John Gierach once said "I used to like fishing because I thought it had some larger significance. Now I like fishing because it's the one thing I can think of that probably doesn't."

you can band it onto a 10/12 but i would recommend you learn to tie a hair, you'll have a much better hook up ratio, you wont have to keep rebanding baits and presentation will be better. Plus, theres lots of baits now, not just for carp fishing, that need to be or are desgined to be hair rigged. Things like pellets, small boilies etc.

If you don't fancy tieing them yourself, you could always buy some of the ready made ones. There's thousands of them available out there.

What about 'superglue', I remember reading somewhere that it can be an effective way of attaching 'bait' to 'hook'.

 

Probably messy though and makes a right mess of your hooks.

 

Jusy a thought.

not a bad idea, thankyou. For all the people that recommended hair rigs i have recently made my first ever hair rig. A size 10 barbless drennan hook with a snippet of 4lb line off my reel. I made it all up and then decided to tie on a bait band instead of using the baiting needle way of doing it. Looking forward to using it for peperami chunks or pellets. cheers

Hi Dave,

 

Like you, I'd never tied (or used!) a hair rig before the summer.

However, they really are very easy to tie with a tiny bit of practice.

Never tried Pepperami, but will in the warmer months.

I DID use a baiting needle for pellets, however, and had an enormous amount of success using this presentation.

Good luck.Give it a go.

In life we all have an unspeakable secret, an irreversible regret, an unreachable dream and an unforgettable love.
