The Weighted pop-up carp rig

Many anglers have their own opinions as to why this rig works so well. As the bait is balanced by the shot this then allows the hook to drop point first in to the fishes mouth aided in some part by the shot. Therefore the angle at which the hair leaves the hook is critical, the closer to the eye the better. Although the exact reason for its effectiveness is disputable there is no denying this rig’s potential. When you are receiving odd bleeps and you think the carp are getting away with it, then this is another great rig to try.
