Snag fishing knowledge and understanding how to fish really close to weed, reeds and underwater features is a great skill to have as it can help you put many more big, heavy, specimen carp on the unhooking mat.
We all know that snags are like a magnet to big carp - they use them as cover, plus the carp feed on waterlife that lives or drifts into the snag or feature.
Here you'll find how to create the perfect rig for snag fishing, and how best to use it...
Remember these rules when creating a rig for snag fishing: Use a flying back lead and rig tubing with putty or wire to keep the line above the rig pinned down to the lake bed. A pear lead can be used on a flat bottom, but try a Grippa for slopes. Finally, to allow easy release of the lead, push the tail rubber only one-third of the way on to the safety clip.
