For real extreme pole fishing where larger carp are present and heavy elastics are being used, then look no further than the XS Carp pole rigs, which are tied using the spade-end X-Strong Carp barbless hooks.
The size 10 will be sufficient for landing most fish you’re likely to hook as it is tied using 0.22mm line. The size 12 is on 0.19mm; size 14 on 0.17mm; size 16 on 0.15mm; and size 18 on 0.13mm.
All three patterns feature perfectly tied spade-end hooks, as neat as anyone can tie them up themselves, and with a figure-of-eight loop knot at the other end for easy attachment to your line.
They all come neatly packaged on cards that make them easy to use – no knots as you try to unravel them! – plus they will fit into the Guru Rig Cases.
Dark Matter Braid, This is a super-supple, super-heavy braided hook link with a clever banded-camou finish that blends in well over most lake beds. The tough fibre filaments are tightly woven, making for a supple-yet-tough hook link braid. It's been designed to sink extremely well, hugging the contours of the lake bed that you're fishing over for maximum subtlety. Dark Matter Braid lends itself to a host of rigs, including solid-bag presentations, the Slip-D rig, Darrell Peck's simple bottom bait rig and, of course, combi rigs. It's available in 15lb, 20lb and 30lb breaking strains.
N-Trap Semi Stiff, The second addition to the N-Trap range is slightly stiffer than the N-Trap Soft that has been so popular since its release. The stiffer coating that Semi Stiff boasts is still easily strippable, making it easier than ever to produce top-notch bottom-bait and pop-up presentations. N-Trap Semi Stiff performed extremely well when used on the underwater filming at St Johns. It is available in Weed Green, Silt and Gravel and in 15lb, 20lb and 30lb versions, to cover all UK and Worldwide situations.
HeliSafe, We've been working on a solution to a problem that anglers been faced with for some time, how to safely and consistently discharge the lead when fishing with a helicopter setup. In order to be a true game-changing product, the Heli-Safe had to fulfill some important criteria... One such criterion was the ability to fish chod rigs at range. The heavy leads needed to fish at long range often become a problem once a fish is hooked. The combination of a very short hook link and large lead would often result in dropped fish. Likewise, venues that had been choked by weed often dictated that dropping the lead was paramount, something that just isn't consistently possible with conventional systems. The demand from anglers to produce a drop-off lead system for use in these situations pushed us to develop the product you see before you. The Heli-Safe System enables you to drop the lead when the situation calls for it. When used in conjunction with our unique Helicopter Safety System and unique No-Trace Beads, you can fish a rotary-rig setup in situations that would have previously led to the loss of hooked fish. The system works by employing a pressure-release function, not seen in the angling world until now. The latched lead clip will open once a hooked fish pulls against the angler, allowing the lead to drop free. By threading a Barrel Bead onto the leader above the Heli Safe, you will prevent the lead from discharging, should you pick up weed or other detritus on the retrieve. Once engaged in battle though, the bead will simply pull down and allow the lead to discharge. The unique design enables the angler to choose when to drop the lead, and when to retain it. In situations where it's not necessary to discharge the lead, a small plastic collar (which is supplied in the kit) can be fitted to fix the lead in place.
