Rig's & Rig Construction
Running rig's can be used to your advantage when everyone else is using fixed lead rig's. We have found that on waters that have had fixed lead rig's used extensivly for the past few years, the Carp have become 'used' to them, feeding cautiously whilst feeling for resistance as they straighten the hooklength, avoiding being hooked. This has been witnessed by many anglers on lots of different waters - it does happen! Using a running rig fools the Carp for long enough for the hook to prick them, by which time it is too late, the run ring hits the back bead the Carp panics & bolts off.
