I use a size 6 bank tackle longshank hook, little bit of shrink tube, micro rig swivel and a 16mm Manilla wafter. The whole thing settles slowly and the hook lays flat.

I personally just use a big size 4 Korda wide gape with a pop up/two grains of corn with a shot to balance the whole lot. The way the hook drops down with a kd Iíve always found the straight shanked hooks fine. My mate has used the curved shanks to good effect though. I like a straight point with it though rather than a beaked point.

What hooks should be best used for the kd rig and wafters? Curve shanks may be recommended but got a reasonable batch of kranks - also good for kd?

I was a user of the slip d rig, but recently moved over to the German rig with a wafter.
Hook sits flat every time, just add a line sinker about 10/15mm from hook. This aids in the mechanics.
Every time bollie is lifted the hook spins around and nails them bottom lip right in the middle.

If your hook is in the air and not in the water, you might be missing the weight...

If the bottom your fishing on is relatively clean, then a stiff hooklink and stripped D-section plus a decent hook size or putty should do it. If it's not clean then I'd use a supple hooklink and a big hook or pin a bit of lead into the bottom of the hookbait to keep it down

Used this rig for the 1st time this weekend and used an 18mm wafter and a size 8 hook using a stiff coated braid with just the D stripped back and it balance perfectly. I used a Korda kicker which would have added a little weight but doubt it had major impact other than hooking potential. Hook was lying flat and wafter just above it. Also worked this way whilst using a snowman hook bait. Oh and I caught so happy with the mechanics of the rig as well

Easiest way to do it would to be to use a big hook so it sits flat anyway and trim the wafter if needed.

A kd would do the same job though.
