Here's a great introductory video on how to tie a basic hair rig - this rig will increase your hookup ratio greatly over putting bait directly onto the hook and will result in more fish on the bank! fish

Awesome vid, as a follow up I would recommend this clear, no nonsense approach to classic rigging. Really good stuff....

These are great beginner videos. I would like to also highlight the following points:
1) on the first video at 3:50 the position of the hook (I highlight this second just to explain easier what i mean). There are plenty of mistakes what people do usually. That basic hair rig is great of single sinking bait. Still it is recommended to reel the hair rig around the hook, depends on the length of the rig. Exactly for that reason how the hook and the bait is at 3:50. with the reeling the bait will be in a better position with the bottom part of the hook.
2) the basic hair rig above can lead wrong catch in case of pop up baits. The issue is the same like at point number 1. recommended to use silicon to fix it or most of the time simple reeling on the hook can help.
3) the hook type is important as well for hair rig
4) the length of the whole rig is important as well especially with Method Feeder. Also based on the carps behavior the length can change longer, shorter etc.
5) in the US, I believe it is also recommended to use jelly wire for the rigs due to catfish and plenty of shellfish


I hope it was helpful. In case it is duplicated information just let me know and i wont write these in the future to avoid spamming smile Just let me know.

Ifvyou like to catch catfish we can get a bunch of those. Lake fork.us still probably the best fishing lake in the world. I wish the grass would come back.

I don't mind catching them but I've never targeted them intentionally. You're right about it being a great Catfish lake though, my biggest Channel from Fork is 11lbs!
