HOW TO: Set up a running rig

The running lead is possibly the most effective and simple carp lead system you can use. The common problem of bite definition when using side clip lead systems and slack lines are completely done away with when using a running rig which always gives positive indications on the bobbin. This setup is also offers good tangle-proof properties.

What you need

- Rig tubing
- Size 8 ring swivels
- Buffer beads
- Scissors


Method

Step 1
Cut the required length of rig tubing. At one end, cut the rig tubing at a 45 degree angle. This will help when inserting the rig tubing into the buffer bead.



Step 2
Place your lead onto the main line



Step 3
Push your main line through the rig tubing until it appears at the far end.Now put the buffer bead onto the line.



Step 4
Tie the size 8 ring swivel onto the main line with a Palomar knot.



Step 5
Pull the tied swivel into the buffer bead and push the rig tube into the back of the buffer bead



Step 6

Your finished setup should look like this.




Simply add a quick link to the ring swivel, attach your hooklength and bait to the quick link and you ready to cast out and start fishing.

Tight lines!
