The D Rig is a bit of an old-school presentation and not as widely used today. However, in the right circumstances it can be deadly. Concocted using fluorocarbon, the rig is practically invisible in the water making it ideal for targeting gin-clear waters that require finesse and subtlety to outwit their residents.
Fluorocarbon is relatively stiff, so the rig will rarely tangle on the cast, eradicating the need for PVA foam or bags that severely decrease the distance and accuracy. Take your pick as to whether you wish to use the stiffer IQ or the suppler IQ2 fluorocarbon.
The D Rig is based on the way that the hook bait is mounted on the D shape constructed by the hook’s eye. You form this by whipping a knotless knot followed by blobbing the tag end with a naked flame. This prevents it pulling through. You then tie your pop-up to the small micro ring that runs along this.
To anchor the pop-up to the lake bed, simply squeeze on the correct split shot. You want to weight it down just enough so that the bait slowly sinks through the water column over the weight of the split shot. This will give it enough buoyancy to shoot back into the carp’s mouth once sucked in.
