How does a hair rig work?
The hair rig attaches the bait to line below the hook. The idea is that the fish will find the bait and suck it in. If they panic and try to spit out the hook it will stick in the fish’s mouth.
How do you attach a hair rig to a sinker?
The most common is to integrate them into a slip sinker rig. Instead of tying a regular leader with a hook to the end of that rig, you simply use a hair rig. Ready made hair rigs come with loops or swivels that allow you to connect them to such rigs with ease.
What is a hair rig for catfish?
The hair rig has been one of the most common rigs used for carp and catfish in Europe since it was first invented some years ago. It isn’t commonly used in other parts of the world like the United States but it probably should be.
Is it time to give the hair rig a go?
There’s never been a better time to give the hair rig a go… A popular way of using a hard pellet hookbait on commercial fisheries is to use a small elastic band to attach it to the hook. The band is tied into a loop at the end of the hair and slipped over the pellet to secure it.
How safe is a hair rig?
When the hair rig is tied correctly (as described below) so that the hook turns during pickup, it safely hooks 99.9% of the fish in the bottom lip. At first (in the mid-70’s in the UK), it was literally a human hair tied to the bend of the hook that had the bait mounted onto it.
How do you hair rig a pellet fishing line?
This leaves the hook clear, and even if the bait is ejected by the fish, it will nearly always catch in the inside of the fish’s mouth. An alternative way of hair-rigging a pellet is to use what is known as a ‘lasso’ – a loop tied in the end of the line which can be adjusted to secure different sizes of pellet.
