Itís no different than I used a bright pink one how odd would that look over a bead of bait? Some times itís the whole I think I will pick that up as it looks interesting. I have had most of my Chod caught fish on bright pink pop ups and the odd white one.

I can say with 100% certainty that carp can distinguish different colours Nidge, They have 3 different types of cone cells in their eyes a bit like us. So yes Carp can see colour, as it happens most fish can distinguish difference in colours (except sharks). The question is more what colours do they see Water absorbs red light so quickly that even in depths of only 5 or 6 feet a red will appear virtually black(this goes back to the old red line thing). Yellow is probably the best for colour retention at depth hens every bugger uses a pineapple pop up


According to the expert Mr simon scott carp have very good colour vision...

weed or if i see fish crashing over the baited spot but no runs. Fish taking off the top and ducks all over the place. Works well in winter as well Wink

The topic was covered in 2 weeks' ago Anglers mail.

Red light doesn't penetrate deeper water and goes grey but in the shallows, it's as red as red can be.

This is why a lot of people use red braid on their reels (it fades to grey on the lake bed).

The reason is that red is a recessive colour and red light from the spectrum needs to reach a red item to reflect the colour. As it cant penetrate the depths of water, it has no colour to reflect.

Hi
I'm gonna have a go at making a naked chod as leadcore leaders not allowed on my waters. One thing I've noticed about this rig when looking it up on the internet is there is a lot written about the business end but in some articles there is not much attention to the safety aspect of this set up. I'm hoping I've grasped the basics of how the rig works and how to make it safely.
