Carp Rigs and Components
There are as many different types of swim as there are fish to inhabit them. It goes without saying that fishing them all requires more tact than just a boilie and hook on a line. Carp rigs can separate a failed session from a championship carp, as long as you have the right one. When it comes to the endeavor of catching carp, nothing less than excellence will do. Lucky for you, we've got you covered.
Here at Fishing Republic, we stock an extensive range of premade carp fishing rigs. These are perfect for the beginner who wants to get stuck right in, or for the expert who just wants to relax and doesn't have the time to make his own beforehand. From simple carp rigs to specialised ones for specific situations, we have as many different types as you could possibly need to make the most of your bait, from bottom baits to hook bait and beyond.
We stock classic, time-tested favourites. For example, Chod rigs. Not only do they offer excellent hookhold, but they're usable in soft mud and weed-laden areas. Buoyant bait generally works best with this kind of hook.
We also offer a selection of Zig rigs, which tend to be more effective in warmer waters. They're also very versatile; They allow you to position your bait at the exact point in the water column that you expect the fish to be biting. This makes them effective through a fair portion of the fishing season with just a little bit of tweaking.
If your issue is tangles, we also offer the predecessor to the Chod rig; The Hinged Stiff Rig. Not only is it almost impossible for this rig to tangle, the same stiffness that grants this effect also reduces the distance the carp needs to move before it's hooked.
Another popular option is the classic Hair rig, which can solve the problem of rejections quite handily with a clever design choice. When a fish takes a boilie, it can't see it. Because of this, they'll generally use their sense of taste or touch to determine whether a hook is there. Of course, this means clever carp can avoid getting caught quite easily just by being careful... However, the Hair rig holds the bait away from the hook, to fool these tricky fish into taking the bait.
