Not only does rig tubing stop the hook link from wrapping around the main line on the cast preventing a tangle, it also stops the fish coming in contact with the line during the fight. This is a vital safety aspect of the rig which we feel should not be ignored. Our tubing has a matt finish, which makes it harder to see underwater and most importantly, easy to thread. It comes in three colours, all of which sink without the need for putty. Having said that, we have seen from the underwater footage that the better the rig is pinned to the lake bed the less scared the carp will be. It is also better to get the colour of the tube exactly right for the spot you are fishing and then weight it with extra putty. Our underwater experience tells us our colours are right and extra putty can only enhance the whole set up but is not as essential as getting the colour right.
Mixa Hook, The first dedicated floater fishing hook. These have been designed to hook even the shyest feeding carp on the surface. With a short shank, super-wide gape, beaked, offset point, they truly are made for the job. The final most noticeable point about these hooks is their sharpness: positively hypodermic is the best possible description. The guys at Korda have been using them for all manner of carp fishing situations as Ali Hamidi explained, They were initially designed for surface fishing, but great hook patterns like this, considering their sharpness and characteristics lend themselves to lots of fishing scenarios. They've been catching specimen Chub, Barbel and obviously loads of carp during testing. The Mixa hook is available in barbed and barbless versions, in size 6, 8, 10 & 12.
Dark Matter Tungsten Tubing, Dark Matter anti-tangle tubing is quite simply the new benchmark for rig tubing. It's the heaviest on the market, and is ridiculously easy to thread. These attributes have seen it become the tubing of choice for fussy anglers like Darrell Peck and Tom Dove. Dark Matter tubing is super limp too, which helps it to follow the contours of the lake bed, keeping your setup well hidden. We make it in three colours, Weed Green, Silt and Gravel, which allows you to closely match the tubing to the lake bed that you're fishing over.
