PAGE 75 CONNECTION MATT MONO 1 2 3 4 Carp Anglers require a mono that can do a number of jobs all wrapped up in one line. The line must be supple and virtually memory free, but on the other hand it must be strong to take the rigours of underwater snags and hi- impact casting with heavy leads. Lastly it must be able to blend into its surrounding to provide the ultimate camouflage. Well look no further the ultimate carp mono has arrived in the shape of the JRC Matt mono! High impact strength, high knot strength and ultimate abrasion resistance, it also boasts little stretch meaning that you're going to be registering bites quicker. Our JRC team recommend that you do two things 1 Get to your local tackle shop and purchase a Berkley line stripper and get that old line off your spool 2 Get spooled up with Connection Matt Mono now!!! www. jrc- fishing. co. uk CHOD RIG STEP BY STEP Used materials: 1- Minimaal 1 a 1.5m. camouflage leadcore. 2- Complete heli- gripter beads. 3- One connect 4 MBT hook. 4- Stif fluorocarbon 20lb. 5- Rig- ring 4 mm. 6- Twin bore bead. STEP 1: At one end we assemble a swivellead through a grinnerknot. Then we move the buffer- bead or a rubber tail to the swivel of the lead. STEP 2: Then the heli- gripter beads and ringswivel are pushed on the leadcore to about a 35cm. distance of the lead. STEP 3: A STIF- D- rig, by means of a threechamber knot, is fastened to the ringswivel. ( Finished rig is about 6cm. Maybe slightly shorter or longer) STEP 4: To attach the lead core to the main line 4 cm of the core should be removed. Burn the tips to avoid tearing. Put a needle, a few inches below the end, through the core and pull the main line through it. A bledknot of at least 6 windings creates a strong and secure link above. STEP 5: If a more free- sliding chod- rig is required, a few cm of shrink tube is added at a certain distance above the heli- gripter. The loose bead of gripter is removed and replaced by a twin bore bead that is attached on the shrink tube.
PAGE 76 CONNECTION FLUO HOOKLINK BROWN CONNECTION SHOCKLEADER CONNECTION SINKING HOOKLINK CONNECTION COATED LEADCORE 1 3 2 4 CONNECTION These Hooklinks have all been developed in conjunction with the Match fishing sector and, as such, are of very high quality and extremely low visibility. The stiff Fluorocarbons behave very much like monofilaments but are virtually invisible under water. The stiffer Fluorocarbons have fantastic anti- eject properties and make ideal stiff links as well as sharing the low visibility aspect of the softer version. STIFF RIG STEP BY STEP Used materials: 1 Fluorocarbon Stiff 20 lb 2 Connect 1 Size 6 3 Quick Fit Link 4 Anti tangle sleeve When and why using the rig The Stiff Rig I use on waters that stand under a lot of pressure of carp anglers. This rig is 12 to 15 cm long and an essential part of the rig is the stiff hair. Thanks to the stiff hair it is very difficult for the boilie and the hook to leave the mouth of the carp without hooking when the carp tries to blow it out. The carp does not know what to do and flees with a bite as result. Because I always fish with a Quick Fit Link, I use an 8- knot to make a loop at the end of the line, I can quickly and easily change my rigs. An anti tangle sleeve provides a clean and smooth finish. Step 1: Cut approximately 25 cm Fluorocarbon Stiff. Step 2: Make a flat knot at the end of the line ( this will become the hair). Pass the other end through the back of the eye of a Connect 1 hook. Pay attention that you pull extra hard or twice to tighten the loop, the knot is usually not directly as solid as with a braided line. Step 3: Determine the length of the hair ad connect the hook with a knotless knot. Allow approximately 2.5 cm space between bait and the bending of the hook so it can properly respond. Step 4: Measure the rig ( 12- 15 cm) and make a loop at the end using the 8- knot Step 5: With a boilie needle you can lace an anti tangle sleeve on the line. Step 6: The rig is ready for use and can be connected to the quick fit link. .
