It is proven that carp can find it very easy to eject single hookbaits. Double baits are slightly harder, but what happens if you have three separate Hairs and baits on the same hook? Pure devastation that’s what!
01 Here is all of the terminal tackle you are going to need to construct the Multi Hair Rig. The rig is devastating over particles and smaller baits.
02 Take a Korda Stripper Tool and place your coated hooklink into it. This tool strips coating off hooklinks easily and quickly.
03 Put the hooklink material through the gate and pull back. If you don’t have a Strippa then simply use your teeth or fingernails.
04 Now take three lengths of supple braid, each somewhere in the region of 10cms and tie a Hair loop at the end of each of them.
05 Take the three Hair lengths and pass them through the hook eye and whip them all at the same time to create a Knotless Knot.
06 Once you’ve whipped around the shank, pass the ends through the eye of the hook as shown. This may be fiddly so take your time.
07 Now take your hooklink material (which you stripped a section from earlier) and pass the uncoated section through the eye of the hook.
08 Again, whip the hooklink material around the shank of the hook and over the Hair braid as if you were tying a Knotless Knot.
09 With the knot now secure, take a pair of scissors and snip off the remaining hooklink material from the Hair’s end as shown.
10 Take the scissors again and trim back the Hair braid. There is three in total so cut them off as shown in the picture very carefully.
11 Next cut yourself a piece of silicone tubing and pass it onto a splicing needle. This is an easy way of getting a piece of silicone onto the hook.
12 Now push the hook point through the silicone and be very careful not to push the point through the side of it during this process.
13 Get all of the Hair loops and lock them into the gate on the needle. Next pull the needle back through with all of the Hairs on.
14 This is what the rig should look like so far. All three Hairs should be underneath the silicon, however, we haven’t finished quite yet.
15 Next, cut off a piece of shrink tubing like so; this is going to go over the eye of the hook to make it flip quickly in the fish’s mouth.
16 Thread the tubing down the hooklink and over the eye and whipping of the knot and then dunk it for 10 seconds into boiling water.
17 There are many different baits that you can use on this rig, one type which proves extremely successful is tiger nuts.
18 The finished product: three baits to one hook! Not only seriously appealing, but a serious mouthful. Good luck, Mr. Carp!
