The revolutionary Krank hook pattern – launched by Korda to critical acclaim from both anglers and the angling media last year – is now available in a brand-new ready-tied format, produced to Tom Dove’s exacting specifications.
Retailing at £1.99 and available in barbed and barbless formats in sizes 10 to 2, the new Krank Rigs utilise the Kamo coated hook link material with a small section stripped back to allow the ultra wide gape Krank pattern to take hold. Included in the price is a swivel for easy attachment to lead clip systems.
“I’ve never been a fan of complicated rigs with many components,” said head of product development, Tom Dove. “But I have always believed that the correct hook link material and hook combined will produce the goods – all you need is two solid, reliable products.
“The Krank Rigs use a simple knotless knot with the correct amount of turns for the diameter of line and size of hook - they can be used anywhere with a variety of different hook baits and will not let you down.”
The rigs cover every carp angling situation with the range of hook sizes – from day ticket carping for double-figure fish to Euro giants - and they’re perfect for use in conjunction with wafter or balanced hook baits, one of Tom Dove’s favourite presentations.
Each pack comes with a free set of Extenda bait stops, allowing a variety of different sized baits to be used on the same length hair, from a single grain of Fake Food plastic corn on the smaller sizes up to double 20mm offerings on the size 2.
The sizes 10, 8 and 6 are tied on 15lb Kamo, size 4 on 20lb and size 2 on 30lb and they will be in shops from mid-July, costing £1.99 per rig.
