This hook was designed primarily for use with the popular chod and hinged stiff rig presentations, alongside a stiff filament like Mouth Trap. However, its appeal doesn't end there, it's a super all-round pop-up hook, which can be used with rigs like Darrell Peck's N-Trap pop-up rig, as well as Tom Dove's N-Trap bottom-bait rig. To allow the sweeping curve of the chod rig to continue unhindered up onto the hook, the Choddy has an out-turned eye. The rest of it's shape is based around the magical dimension of the iconic Wide Gape pattern, with all its attendant hold-and-hold capabilities. The Choddy is thicker in the wire than the standard Wide Gape, which makes it perfect for the biggest carp in the world. Darrell Peck has landed fish to over 70lb on the size-eights, which gives you an insight into the incredible properties that this hook possesses.
Braided Carp Rig, Braided rigs tied to exacting specifications. They feature the legendary Wide Gape hook and super-supple Supernatural braid. The rigs are supplied with Extenda Stops and bait stops for free. These rigs really are super versatile and can be used with a host of baits and lead systems. Available in sizes 6, 8 and 10.
Mini Skyliner Spod, Following the unrivalled success of our original Skyliner it was inevitable that we would release a smaller brother to go with it. A more robust, buoyant and effective product you would be hard pushed to find. This is a spod that can introduce any newcomer to spodding, as it does not require specialist spodding equipment to cast it. Full of bait it weighs no more than 3oz, which means normal carp rods of 2.5lb TC will be able to cast this spod comfortably, to ranges of up to 80 yards. Unlike other mini spods, which fly badly and don't release bait very well, this is perfectly aerodynamic and with all the characteristics of the original Skyliner it will release bait with consummate ease. Specialist and match anglers have already been putting these through their paces with fantastic results.
Swivels, The humble swivel completes the whole rig set up and since it is almost the last connection between you and the carp it needs to be reliable. We always bought swivels from the same source, until our suppliers' supplier merged with a new company. The stocks were mixed and some were not as good quality so we immediately set about sourcing an alternative. They say that from every adversity comes an equal or greater benefit and in this case the swivels we located came from Japan - arguably the best swivel manufacturers in the world. They matched the size of the originals exactly, improved the breaking strain and reliability, and made them in a lovely dull grey tint. This was an improvement that entailed only a marginal increase in price - 10 per cent over 10 years! The swivels have round eyes because they are stronger than diamond eyes, if this were not the case then hooks would be made with diamond eyes! They fit just about everything that we make including - the Inline Leads, Lead Clips, Running Rigs, Shok Beads and Rubbers, what more can we say!
Bait Box, The boxes are available in three sizes – 3.3 pints, 2.2 pints and one pint (which is an exact 1-pint measure, making it ideal for anglers who have to keep to strict bait limits). The two larger tubs have perforated lids and the smaller version is available with solid and perforated lids. The larger boxes will fit traditional bait waiters, and two of the smaller boxes will fit snugly inside the bigger boxes. “You can’t reinvent a bait box,” Adam Rooney explains, “However, we all use bait boxes and as the Guru band grows, a simple range of boxes meeting our team’s requirements makes a nice edition to the range. The boxes all have a nice strong overmoulded lid with a window to help the anglers locate what is in each box.
