Rig Help!!!

Post  nealy on Sun Aug 09, 2009 2:03 pm

Guys i need your help, being a carping novice im slowly picking things up.
The Pool im fishing is about 8ft deep and the fish seem to like to feed off the top, im fishing a Fox controller float with about 6ft hooklength and a pop up.

Im catching, but they all seem to be 2 - 4lbs which dont get me wrong im happy with but the bigger fish (10-20's) seem to be just below the surface and dont seem to feed off the top!

Have you got any tips or rigs or is my set up just wrong?

Cheers

Yeh I would go with a 7ft zig rig

That's a 7ft pop up off of the lead, as it is above 5ft use a nice peice of boyant sponge as well as your hook bait.

Hi Nealy

What I'd suggest in the Nash controller which acts as a bolt rig as well

Link here

http://www.johnsonrosstackle.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=988

Id cut your your rig length down when using it to about 2 foot max

Also make your line float by putting some vaseline on the last 2 foot
