Tench Rigs 27th April

Ive been messing round with a few hooks and have gone with these hooks,there a strong hook,and they turn really well .Last year when bream fishing i used the Korda wide Gape and Nash Fangx .
These imitation maggots are so like the real thing.i already had a few different ones,but have gone with these.

Now the hooklength material,i wanted a supple hook length material.i had bought this for a spot of carp fishing to do the KD rig.I have been using the e.s.p Striptease for bream and barbel and really like it.I will see how i go with the super natural and if im not happy with it,i will go back to the striptease.

Ive made 4 different rigs,the first is a D Rig,with 2 fake maggots and one fake caster,tied on a short
3 inch hooklength with a korda wide gape,this rig is different to the others due to the way the hook is positioned,im hoping when the fish sucks up the bait and feels the weight of the feeder,the hook will turn.
The other 3 rigs are 3 inches in length,size 14 Barbel hook,with various imitation maggots,2 hairs the same and one with a longer hair,will have to see which works the best,and hopefully catch some nice tench.
Drennan inline maggot feeder,just thread line through the feeder and tie with a palomar knot to the swivel.The swivel pushes inside the feeder and is just tight enough to make it a bolt rig.ive replaced the swivel with a j swivel.ive found these to be an easy way to connect and remove when the fish is netted .

Basically place your loop over the swivel and slide the rubber tubing over the loop

Slide the rubber over the loop and now you have the rig ready to use.Ive taped up the back end of the feeder so it releases the maggots slower,it takes 45-60 minutes for it too empty,so for a full days fishing you will need at least 2-4 pints of maggots,that depends on whether you want to feed maggots via spomb or spod.I am goin to spomb a mix out which will contain 4mm pellet,hemp and dead maggots.Well till the next time and hopefully some tench pics.
