Hair Rig

Recommended Posts

With all the carp talk on here lately me and a buddy decided to go to Peter's and buy some carp specific baits and rigging (some stuff is from new world carp) for this Saturday.

Now I purchased a couple packs of Sumo D-A-M Spiral Hair Rigs and we are stuck as to how we get the Maize and Boilies onto this spring? if that's even how they hook up. :unsure:

I would think this style of hair rig would be best suited for packing dough baits or paste onto.

Agreed. Now how do I get an orange rabbit-fur zonker onto one of those rigs? :roflblack:

Thanks guys, so I guess I am back to square one, because I did not buy any dough baits or pastes.

Guess I will just start watching youtube videos and practicing hair rigs.

I have another issue...

Tonight when I tried using the Maize and Boilies on just a #2 hook, I had nothing but issues.

#1 - Maize would not at all stay on the hook for more than two minutes, pretty much first cast.

#2 - I could not get the boilies onto the hook without them crumbling to pieces.

Any pointers?

With the boilies, there is a little hand drill and threading needle for putting boilies on a hair rig or straight to the hook.

Ya. Those rigs you bought are for paste or dough.

You cannot fish a boilie right on the hook. It is too hard. It can only be fished on a hair rig.

Dough is easy.

1/2 cup of flour

1/2 cup of corn meal

1/2 cup of oatmeal

1/2 cup of sugar

Add enough water to make a nice mud of it. Then zap for a couple of minutes in the micro wave. Allow it to cool to room temperature and put it in a plastic bag or container. You can add what ever flavour you like after it is cooked.

Awesome!!

I am going to go back to peters to look for that little hand drill for the boilies and I am going to continue learning how to make my own hair rigs, I am also going to make a batch of that dough tomorrow so I can at least use the couple packs of these spiral hair rigs that I bought.

:thx: Thanks alot guys, your help is greatly appreciated.

the hand drill and hook is right above the carp baits, almost at the top of the shelf, right beside where you got your spring hair rigs.
