    Hi all at Talk Angling Forum !

    Just wanted to ask any anglers out there whats the best way to set up a bomb rig for match carp waters with a 10mm pellet hair rigged as bait !

    Cheers

    Welcome copy208 to the site.

    To answer your question it would really depend on if you are casting to a feature or to open water.

    Personally I like to put my bomb in a loop, by that I mean tie a 4" piece of line to the bomb, then at the top of that tie on a small swivel. Then get your main line and put it through the swivel and pull through about 18" of line and double this back on itself. Now tie this loop so that the bomb and its link is running free in a big loop. Now move the swivel towards the rod tip so the big loop is below the bomb, tie a series of smaller loops in the last 6" of the big loop - attach your hooklength to the end and away you go. If fishing tight to snags I will put the bomb on without the 4" piece of line.

      Fantastic !
      Thanks for the quick response and the recommendation the method sounds simple and effective with no messy tubing or clips etc ! I'll give it go.

        Let us know how you get on.... one other thing, you can make the link to the bomb a slightly lighter line so if it gets caught you lose the bomb but not the fish hopefully!
