Ready to use rigs

Ready to use underlines are the solution for carp anglers who can't tie their own knots or want to catch their fish with little time. Nowadays there is not one standard underline developed, no, nowadays there are dozens of different ready-made carp lines. The difference is in the type of rig, length, line strength / diameter, hook size and extra options. All those options don't make the choice any easier, and they make for the demand:
What do you need to look out for when buying a ready-made carp eaver line?
First of all, look at the type of rig. Leader lines are also called rigs. There are many different types but there are some that are used a lot: the knotless knot rig, Chod rig, D-rig, blowback rig and the combi rig.

Knotless knot rig

Actually the most common underline made of braided underline material and a hair behind the hook. This is fished on the bottom with a bait, pellet or particles.

Chod rig

The bottom line for fishing with a pop up. Knotted with stiff underline material so that the underline is upright. The chod rig is good to fish in combination with a leadcore leader or even on a piece of supple underline material. This underline has to be made heavier in combination with for example a piece of lead, otherwise the pop up will float up with the rig.

D-rig

The D-rig is named after the 'D' knotted on the hook. This is often fished by a slow sinking bait. Because the bait is fished close to the hook, the hook will come right into the carp's mouth.

Blowback rig

The blowback rig is a very effective rig for most waters. By means of a line aligner the hook-in is increased considerably. The bottom line is fairly easy to knot which makes it also good to use for the beginning carp angler.

Combi rig

A combi rig consists, as the name suggests, of a combination of two different underline materials. The underline often consists of a stiff and a soft material. The stiff material ensures that the rig is bumped far away from the lead and helps to hook in properly when sucked in.

Length of the rig

Most bottom lines are fished at a length of 15 to 30 cm. Except if you fish with a chod rig, you fish just above the bottom and will often not be longer than 8 cm.

The average bottom line is between 15 and 30 cm. But when do you use which length of bottom line? A long bottom line is often used when the surface is very soft. The lead can go a bit further into the ground in such places, so you take some material with you. If you fish at that moment with a long bottom line, the presentation of your rig will always be good.

A shorter bottom line is often used in the colder months when the fish doesn't swim as much and bites more carefully. The bottom line is often fished with a hook with a straight point. This ensures a quick hook.

A chod-rig is often no longer than 8 cm. The length is often determined by the amount of plants and vegetation the chod-rig wants to fish for. With a lot of vegetation you can use a longer chod-rig and with little or no vegetation you can use a shorter chod-rig.

The hook size of the rig

The hook size of a rig can be very different but in general a hook size 6 is the most commonly used. On larger waters with large fish many carp anglers use a large bait. In order to increase the chance of a hook, a larger hook will generally be used. However, this does not mean that a larger hook has a better chance of catching a fish. A smaller hook is lighter and will get into the mouth of the fish more easily. Also, a smaller hook will prick better and faster.

Tip: Ask for information about the water where you want to fish, often you can use this information to determine which hook size is best for you.

Diameter / strength of the rig

The thickness and strength of the underline again depends on the water where you are going to fish. If you have very large fish here, always go for a stronger underline of for example 40 - 50 lb. If you are fishing on a small well and the fish are not that big, you can also fish with a 15 lb line. In addition, there are many different colors of underlines available nowadays. So you can always adjust the colour of the bottom line to the bottom.

There are also often extra options on a ready-made rig. Think for example of included boiliestoppers, extra glands, sleeves, etc.
