After tying my sea rigs i then decided to tie some chod rigs as i plan on having a little dangle for carp on a local park lake soon.
These are right fiddly little blighters to make as they are only a couple of inches long so this makes it really tricky for me. But sitting comfortable at a desk with a mug of Latte next to me makes it seem all the easier.
I also make up my pike and perch rigs in the office and have a big tool box full of the necessary wire, crimps, swivels treble hooks and all the other bits and pieces like side cutters and crimping pliers nicely stored within. It makes life so much easier and is a nice way to spend an hour when i,m bored at work.
I started off making rigs this way to make my fishing a more pleasurable experience, but now i,ve been doing it for a few years i can honestly say that 99 percent of my rigs are now tied in advance of a fishing trip. I,ve also noticed that as long as i keep them stocked up it makes it easier to just grab a bit of tackle, for whatever species i,m aiming for, and set off on short notice trips. Especially if just going for a couple of hours. Its definitely worth giving it a go.
PREPARATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS THEY SAY.....
