Hi mate , that hooklink is nice stuff, in my opinion the rig shown in your post would be very good if you simply swapped the lower bait for a sinking bottom bait, this would give you a lovely snowman rig, you wouldnt need the putty then as it would be lying on the bottom, the length of the supple section could be a little less, but its an effective rig if fished like that and has caught thousands of carp , and will do for long time. I personally have more seperation between the hook shank and the bait, and i mostly add a ring on the shank to aviod tangles as has been said before i believe.
brilliant to test your hooking arrangements like that, very good practice just to see and understand how they might work and look on the bottom is great to see .
Check out rigmaroles website i think they have a video specific to that product and guides to tieing a few rigs .
That rig and the multi rig give you 2 really proven fish catching rigs which are not too difficult to tie and cover a lot of fishing situations. Its important to understand the rig mechanics so you can understand which rigs work in situations you encounter and why hopefully. Its also important to enjoy the fishing and have fun so dont forget that bit

Another vote for the multi rig, easy to tie and very effective

As Mark says, use a multi rig, the break in the nylon literally only has to be a couple of mil (if that) to be effective and yes you can still use a shot to balance.

Look at Ken's pics in post #5 Here

Would be better if the bait was mounted on a d rig. You could use it as a bottom bait rig. Fished as a multi rig with a slip d bait attachment.

I have never used hydrolink but Iím sure it has a removable flouro inner?. The length of supple section might not be too long depending on the bottom your fishing on. If fishing over weed I like my pop ups a bit higher. Are you fishing over a clean bottom?. One thing that strikes me is the snowman type hookbaits both pop ups I take it? Are very blatant if your fishing for smaller carp on a clear bottom they could be avoiding this completely. The hook is actually in a very good hooking position.however I donít fish my pop ups on a hair anymore I prefer to fish them on a D like on a chod rig with a hook ring swivel for more movement. I think this helps hooking and when a fish ejects the bait it has less effect on the hook than it would do with a hair in my opinion.

Having not fished with that material I donít know if itís suitable but have you tried a multi rig? Itís a much more subtle presentation and being able to change the hook quickly without having to tie up a new rig is brilliant. Your pop ups also donít need to be massively buoyant for this rig either. It will catch smaller carp as well as bigger carp where as something like a hinge rig can be a bit crude for smaller carp. You can slide a small sinker of float stop down the hooklink and wrap putty around it. With a multi I just use the knot. Give the multi a try with a 11mm pop up keep it low to the deck if itís clean. Focus on finding the fish and donít cast out until you have seen fish location is far more important than any rig. This post is not to say there is anything wrong with your rig as itís perfectly acceptable I think for the size of carp you might be after something a little more refined will suit you better

Hi,

I have attempted my first combi rig using Rigmarole Hydrolink and need advice. Firstly, I know that the supple section (between putty and hook) is too long so needs shortening.

Also do I still use a small shot and/or putty even though there is no knot in tying two materials. I assume it's to be used anyway for balance etc but want to check as I have never used the rig.

Secondly, is the hook presented correctly? It doesn't sit how I imagined it too and after a couple blanks I'm trying to switch things up and regain confidence.

Feel free to rip it to shreds, I'd rather just learn and gain experience!

Thanks in advance
